C-10 Podcast: Bill Hancock, Ep. 42

Bill Hancock


If you’re into college sports at all, you’ve likely heard the name Bill Hancock. He was the long-time director of the NCAA Final Four, the first executive director of the Bowl Championship Series and the first executive director of the College Football Playoff. Shoot, you may have even seen him TV helping to present the championship trophy to the game’s winning coach.

Or, if you’ve ever had to deal with the unimaginable grief of losing a child, you may have read his incredible book, “Riding with the Blue Moth,” which he wrote a few years after the death of his son, Will, in the 2001 Oklahoma State plane crash. Frankly, it’s a must-read for everyone.

On top of all of that, Bill, who’s a longtime Kansas City resident, is one of the most genuine, caring people you will ever meet.

In this episode of the C-10 podcast, Hancock talks about his leadership journey and the importance of putting others first, takes a swing at our “Pregame BP” questions, shares how he’s dealt with the loss of a son, and much more.
