MIAMI, FL, April 09, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- For one lifelong basketball lover, the phrase "March Madness" takes on a whole new meaning this month as he chases his dream job in NCAA basketball. From March 7 through April 9, longtime personal trainer and running coach Scott Fishman is driving coast-to-coast to visit the country's best-known sports communities to literally apply for jobs at schools with some of the top programs-jobs that aren't even open, yet. Some think he is crazy, so tying the trip to the basketball madness of March was fitting. However, doubters are only fuel to the fire inside this native New Yorker who has coached and trained athletes in basketball and marathon running for more than a decade. He believes it takes something a little crazy like this trip to stand out and show how serious he is about this dream, especially when he is looking to lay down roots anywhere in the country for the opportunity to coach. "I am following my heart," says Fishman. "And coaching basketball is what sets my soul on fire."
On his quest to become an assistant basketball coach at a Division 1 program, Fishman and a colleague will document his journey of 50 cities in 35 days, from Florida to California and back. They plan to release a film titled, "A Coaching Dream" soon after the trip concludes. The biographic sports film will follow the basketball lifer as he visits all the coaches' offices from Florida and North Carolina to Kansas and Arizona and everywhere in between. The journey also includes a couple of commemorative stops. Such a quest would not be complete without a visit to what is now known as the "Historic Hoosier Gym," in Knightstown, Indiana, where the final scenes of the 1986 basketball film, "Hoosiers," were filmed. A stop in Phoenix for the National Championship was also included in the schedule. In the meantime, the public can follow him on Instagram at @acoachingdream.
