    A celebrated coach reveals the secrets to building a fierce competitor. At age 26, Joanne P. McCallie, aka Coach P, began her career at Maine, where in the span of eight years, she elevated the women's basketball program to a very competitive team that outdrew the men's crowds, a rarity in college sports.
