I Wasn't Expecting All This: Memoir of a Grateful Coach Kindle Edition
Memorable Moments from a Grateful Coach
Having coached collegiately for nearly three decades (and lived for nearly six), Scott Whitlock has developed a unique and interesting perspective on life - along with some very entertaining stories. Whitlock has seen it all, not only on the field, but behind the scenes. Some of his favorite memories are documented in his memoir, I Wasn’t Expecting All This.
Whitlock’s career began in 1985, when Kennesaw State University hired him as assistant women’s basketball coach and assistant slowpitch softball coach. In 1986, he took over as head softball coach and was instrumental in building one of the most respected college softball programs in the country. Whitlock was the driving force behind the program’s successful transition from slowpitch at the NAIA level to fastpitch at the NAIA, from NAIA to NCAA Division II, and from Division II to Division I.
One of the collegiate softball’s all-time, winningest softball coaches, Whitlock shares his whimsical stories of building a successful program, the dynamics of coaching for nearly 30 years, and the interesting characters and life lessons he encountered along the way.

Our daughter went to Kennesaw as a seventeen year old to play for Coach and I would implore that all parents of a young athlete read this journey and take to heart all the important information that Coach Whitlock delivers.
As our daughter stated recently "I want to thank Coach Whitlock and Coach McKinley for making the trips to ...... to see me play and believing in me enough to make me apart of the Kennesaw State Softball family".
Every young Athlete needs to have a Coach Whitlock once in there lives.
