Sir Alex Ferguson Reportedly Lands Harvard Teaching Position

BR-UK StaffFeatured Columnist IVApril 4, 2014

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:

Sir Alex Ferguson is to become a Harvard academic after agreeing to a “long-term teaching position” at the Ivy League university.

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.

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.
