Jack Smith
Basketball Coach

May 1st, 2013

Dear Mr. Johnson —

The reason I'm looking to start coaching basketball is because I was a previous player myself. I understand the requirements of becoming a player-coach to the team. I was an NBA player through the years of 1999 - 2001. My experience taught me many lessons. It taught me how to be humble, how to treat others, how to increase my talents, and more.

That's why as a previous Basketball Coach I have been able to:
Coach more than 150 players in NBA positions.
Ensure the team was properly managed, which included scheduling travel and ensuring equipment was correct.
Played a pivotal role in developing the teams funding, through donations and selling merchandise.

I look forward to interviewing with you. If there is any information that you'd like to see that I didn't include in my application, please feel free to contact me and I will return that to you as soon as possible.
