Reader, These are turbulant times in our profession. It's just beginning, but football coaches at every level are losing their jobs at an alarming rate. The highs & lows of our profession are unlike any other.
I've been hired as a head coach five times and that is an adrenaline rush to say the least. From putting together a staff of quality individuals, meeting new people, joining a community as a leader and dealing with sleep issues it's always a roller coaster ride. I have enjoyed every minute albeit I have learned what to do if I go through that again.
I've been fired a couple of times as a head coach and as part of a coaching staff when the head coach was let go. Now that, I can assure you is not something I would wish on my worst enemy. The self-doubt, uncertainty and anguish can be so extreme when you feel like you've let down your team, friends and family.
When one door closes another one will open... Keep the faith while you create a football coaching life on your terms!

Football Coaching Carousel

The coaching carousel accelerates as the football season progresses in the fall and hits a fever pitch right after the last games. This turbulent time of the year when coaches are hired, fired, and moving from place to place at an unprecedented pace is unheard of in any other profession.
