According to Yanni Hufnagel, coaching is a calling rather than a career. No matter the situation, Yanni would hold on to the faith that his dreams were still valid. He would peruse through the basketball guide books, keenly analyze the tactics, and assimilate them using basketball figurines. Later, Yanni got a job with the local television of calling teams. Due to his knowledge and in-depth analysis of the game, it was clear that basketball was his passion. His partner said that one would predict that Yanni would either be a coach or a game commentator.
Yanni got admitted at Cornell University and immediately became the basketball manager in his first year on campus. His dedication and commitment were unmatched. While on summer break, Yanni got an internship opportunity as an assistant coach with New Jersey Nets. His career path got clearer every day. After four years of continued success and commitment, he got linked to Jeff Capel, an Oklahoma coach, who later invited him for an interview as an assistant coach.
In 2009, Jeff recommended Yanni for the head coach position at Harvard University. Yanni scooped the volunteer assistant coach position and immediately started hiring potential players into the team. His outgoing personality made him hire many players who depicted interest in the basketball game. He was not afraid of disappointments from some players refusing his invitation to join the team. At last, Yanni had a team of talented players who he coached and saw them win many awards.
