About Wayne Coffey
Wayne Coffey is one of the country's most acclaimed sports journalists, forging an alternate career route after his initial plan - replacing Mickey Mantle in the Yankee outfield - did not pan out. A former writer for the New York Daily News and the author of more than thirty books, including five New York Times bestsellers, he is a three-time nominee for the Pulitzer and been frequently honored by the Associated Press for his sports feature writing. Coffey co-authored Mariano Rivera's bestselling memoir, The Closer, R. A. Dickey's Wherever I Wind Up and Carli Lloyd's When Nobody Was Watching, and also worked with Urban Meyer on his leadership book, Above The Line. The Boys of Winter, Coffey's chronicle of the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team that beat the Soviet Union in Lake Placid, is widely regarded as one of the best hockey books ever written.
Coffey's latest work, They Said It Couldn't Be Done: The '69 Mets, New York City and the Most Astounding Season in Baseball History, will be released next month.
