More About Coach Kirk

Kirk Talley, a coaching veteran of 40 years, has experience working with athletes to be the best they be through a wholistic approach (mental, relational, and physical). Previous to his move back to Minnesota, he was at Warner University, FL as the defensive coordinator and head football coach.
Before Warner, Talley had a 16-year stint as the head coach at the University of Northwestern-St. Paul. He left Northwestern with the most wins in its history, a 112-51 (.687) record, including a 90-21 (.810) conference record. Under Talley's leadership Northwestern also appeared in six bowl games and guided them to an NCAA Division III playoff berth as well as a 7th conference title.
The coaching veteran has coordinated both sides of the ball at the small college level and coached every position, so can work with anyone who wants to elevate their skills. A long-time member of the American Football Coaches Association, he has worked numerous football camps over his coaching history and has six years of experience coaching track & field as well as 20 years as an assistant professor of physical education. He is a graduate of Pacific Lutheran University and while there was under College Football Hall of Fame member Frosty Westering as well as Dr. Colleen Hacker, professor, and six-time Olympic games mental skills coach. He obtained his Master of Arts at Miami University, Oxford, OH, while a member of the football coaching staff.

A two-year letter winner, track and football, in high school. Elected by peers as track captain senior season. Played college football at Golden Valley Lutheran College (two-time state football championship runners-up) and Pacific Lutheran University. In the 3 seasons of college football Talley played, the teams did not lose a regular season game.

I am about relationship first and foremost. I will ask a few questions to find out who you are as a person, then observe and assess your motor skills. (I can work with any position in the sport of football, so each position will look a bit different.) I will always start with fundamental skills, and then make a coaching assessment. From there I'll coach you with content filled feedback!

Example: Quarterback position - we will talk about leadership and then focus on four of the fundamental skills it takes to throw well: Shoulder to the target, J-motion with the arm, stepping with opposition and finishing with the wrist crossing over the hip (cross lateral transfer).

Once I am comfortable with the athlete's acquisition of the fundamentals, I will work on the other motor learning skills necessary for that particular position (using a sound teaching progression). My goal for each athlete is to understand skill development is a process and that continued work to master all the particular skills for that position will always be necessary. There is always something more to be done to be the best one can be.

Great way to get ready for tryouts! Wish we had found coach Kirk earlier in the summer- he was great to work with!

No other coaching colleague has influenced me more than Kirk Talley. When I first entered the profession, Talley was the leader I watched and emulated. With 40 years of experience, Talley has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to helping coaches and athletes discover areas of untapped potential. If you have the opportunity to work with Talley - take it!
Kirk is a proven champion, on and off the field. He can help you be your best, reach your potential, and have more fun/find more joy in your journey to true success. Kirk is one of the best I've ever been around to let the Spirit lead him, and to integrate his faith in every facet of his life.
Coach Talley's legacy as a coach of influence is evidenced in the countless lives, he has impacted through coaching the hearts of many. His impact has truly rippled out into numerous generations. He has been one of the most influential leaders I have seen, and the lessons he taught me have been put to practice to develop my own success at home with family, as a football coach, and now as a leader in the business world. I can't think of a better leader to learn how to create a positive lasting impact.
