North Augusta, SC--When Sam Wyche was coach of the Cincinnati Bengals, he took a team that basically went from worst to first. Four wins one year, the next to the Super Bowl. Now, years removed from coaching, Wyche is still looking to make an impact on people.

The former coach was in North Augusta discussing all he's gone through as a heart transplant recipient and hoping everyone checks the box to become a donor. Not just that, but how sports actually does relate to the work force. You can draw direct parallel's on success on both fronts .

"You got to be loyal. That was Paul Brown's most important word in sports he told me. Make sure you have a loyal staff that when you walk out of that meeting, and you argue, argue, argue on how to block that trap play, you walk out and all say we figured out how to do it and we're all on board." said Sam Wyche

Wyche, who lives in South Carolina now, follows the Falcons and Panthers and has ties to both management staffs. And with a daughter in Clemson, he has become a tiger fan by default he said.
