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
