The ninth of 11 children, Megan Harrington grew up understanding the value of competition and how to tell a great story. In the third grade, Megan wrote a poem that included the prophetic line: “When I grow up, I want to be a Lady Griz basketball player at the University of Montana.”

Megan did attend the University of Montana to attain a communications degree, an MBA, and play for the Lady Griz. As a Lady Griz, Megan played for legendary head coach, Robin Selvig.

Rob Selvig ended his 38-year head coaching career at the University of Montana in 2016. His stats are impressive: 865 wins, 24 conference championships, and 21 times Coach of the Year.

After seven years as managing director of the Montana World Trade Center, Megan’s desire to tell stories - particularly faith-based ones - commanded her to Hollywood. Here, she merged her UM basketball experience with her storytelling skills, producing, directing, and co-writing The House That Rob Built — a documentary detailing the legendary career and impact of her former coach.

Today on Can Do, we learn more about Megan’s career path and the labor of love that is The House That Rob Built.
