In 2014, Tyler Ford became a full-time NBA official at age 30.
During his final season in the NCAA, he worked a variety of leagues from the NBA, G-League, Big 10, and more.
We think you’re going to find this story quite entertaining as Tyler recalls his final division 3 game from that 2014 season.
Although this story is fun and light-hearted it also serves as a microcosm to the fact that coaches are poor evaluators of officiating talent.

The Best Time to Send a Message to a Coach
Many officials struggle with knowing when the best time is to address a coach over a previous concern.
We find the most opportune time usually is following a timeout after they’ve had a moment to decompress with their team.
The next time you have to send a message to a coach try delivering it during this time to ensure it was received.

📍It’s amazing how confident and certain we can be about a call until someone questions or disagrees with us.
2️⃣ seconds ago we just felt great about the play but since we got a little push back and resistance we allowed doubt to creep in.
➖We cannot allow negative comments or opinions to creep into our psyche and influence our decision making.
➕This same concept applies to positive comments too by not allowing them to get to your head and gas you up.
𝗢𝘂𝗿 𝗴𝗼𝗮𝗹 each episode is to provide the listener with as much pure value as possible by presenting the highest quality/quantity of officiating information. Hopefully, our content inspires you to love officiating and helps you to raise your overall level of performance on the court.
