By Marcus Hondro     Apr 4, 2014 in World
Sir Alex Ferguson is switching from lecturing footballers, the likes of Wayne Rooney, to university students. The 72-year-old Sir Alex has signed to teach at Boston's Harvard University. He gave lectures on coaching at the Ivy League school last year.
This time he is describing it as a "long-term teaching position" and he will lecture in a new Harvard Business School program called 'The Business of Entertainment, Media and Sports.' He will begin his new job in May. The Telegraph in the U.K. said the program will see Sir Alex "lecture to senior executives from around the world."
“I’m delighted to have the opportunity and privilege to contribute to such a respected centre of excellence,” Sir Alex said. “The time I have already spent at Harvard has been a stimulating experience and I look forward to developing my relationship and activities with the students, faculty and friends of the Harvard Business School community.”
The legendary Ferguson, from Scotland, managed Manchester Untied from 1986 to 2013; among other trophies, he won 13 Premier League titles and 2 UEFA Champion's League titles. He is one of the most widely respected football mangers in the history of the game.
