Sir Alex Ferguson retired from football management at the end of last season, leaving Manchester United in the hands of David Moyes and seemingly taking some much-needed time off. Idleness may not suit the Scotsman, however, as he has apparently taken a new job: teaching at Harvard.
Ben Rumsby of The Telegraph reports that the legendary manager has secured a long-term teaching position at the prestigious university and will begin in May:Britain’s most successful ever manager will return to the Boston institution next month to lecture senior executives from around the world, less than a year after giving its Business School an unprecedented insight in to his coaching blueprint.
Sir Alex Ferguson is to become a Harvard academic after agreeing to a “long-term teaching position” at the Ivy League university.
His class will reportedly be titled "The Business of Entertainment, Media and Sports." Here's a friendly warning to potential students: Don't cross him lest you wind up getting the hairdryer treatment.
