About The Independent [A Coach Bob Story!]
'Another one in the slammer!' The headline screamed at Coach Bob as another lawmaker took “the stroll” to his jail cell. The long streak of crooked politicians and the ongoing gridlock in Washington D.C. forces Bob out of retirement and into a new line of work. Does Coach Bob have the kind of game to take on the political system in our nation’s capital? What has he learned from the gridiron that can help turn around a political system gone bad? Bob knows how to unify diverse backgrounds from all walks of life, but can he handle the slurs, insults and lies from the political elite who will do whatever it takes to defend their turf?
Coach Bob has measured his life by one yardstick – he shows everyone around him how to “earn it.” Can Coach Bob climb Capitol Hill and help re-establish nobility and integrity in Washington D.C.?
What Others Are Saying
"Politics needs to change and readers will root for Coach Bob, who exemplifies everything good in life. Rick did a good job of creating a tough, industrious character who believes in working hard and receiving the rewards for that hard work. And I believe readers will relate to that kind of character, especially in today's political climate."

"A timely moment of fiction reflecting our current chaotic relationship with values and political currency. Rick McGee’s second installment about the life of Bob Newton after Yardstick is even better than the first. Coach Bob’s salient moments are memorable when debating his opponent under pressure – and on the clock in more ways than one."
