In my opinion, discipline and then developing talent. Taking marginal kids and making them men/women. Coaches have a tough job and don’t get enough credit. Again, just my opinion.
Put them together and you get a great coachI think it comes down to the differentiation between a "good" coach and a "successful" coach.
A good coach is one who can teach the game and build a program where its teams have on-field success in terms of winning.
A successful coach is one who teaches and molds young men and women into more mature, respectful young adults, and who builds their confidence and makes them want to be more than they thought they could be.
How about develop your own? I hate recruiting! unless its your own kids in the building. Develop your own kids in your district and start at a young age to get the interest brewing. A good/successful coach has one eye on the future at all times.recruiting
good support from the AD and the administration
I agree with all of these, but coaching is at the top.The biggest reason is your level of competition, your schedule. Then, your talent level. Then your weight lifting and conditioning. then your coaching.
Team won a few games when the kid was allowed to play and lost when he didn’t. Ultimately, the kid rode the bench so often that he quit three-fourths of the way through the season, and the coach accepted a losing record over playing the kid.
My point is that it doesn’t seem that anyone wins here ... For the Coach, he now has to face the possibility of losing his coaching position (especially if the losses continue).
Also wonder, if a coach loses his job over it, would he still believe it was worth dying on that hill?
Why would a coach lose his job over benching a kid?
