So you want to work in sports analytics...

I have spent many hours on the phone with budding sports analysts. Some are students that are convinced that they want a career in pro sports, some are analytic professionals that are looking to put their tools to work in an industry that they are more passionate about, and others are coaches or athletes that see that analytics in sports is growing and want to know how to get ahead of that curve.

I enjoy these conversations because typically, you can hear the excitement in the prospective analyst.
