Lannie Julias is one of the great talent evaluators of our time as well as a savant when it comes to sports history. He has been around the football coaching and scouting ranks for the better part of 40 years.
Pete Carroll once referred to Lannie as ‘a legend’. At 64 years of age, Lannie knows–or is known by–everyone from Bruce Snyder to Kirk Krikorian to the current King of Spain.
If you live in Los Angeles and are into sports, there’s a decent chance that you have come across Lannie at some point, especially if you frequent local sporting events, coffee shops or news stands.
I am excited to report that LannieJulias.com is now up and running (you can also click on the link to the right of the page). There’s not much content there just yet, but keep checking back if you are in the mood for some interesting offseason reading.
I met Lannie about seven years ago and he has helped change the way I look at sports. Give him a shot and you just might learn a thing or two as well.
At the very least, I’ll bet you walk away from your computer screen with a smile on your face.
