    Default Seeking successful Manager that knows how to Coach

    More coaches, more players, more to manage...the Devil is in the details!

    A Head Coach at the DI level in football must be a manager first, then sideline coach. He has more staff to manage(X5 compared to Basketball?), more players (X10 compared to Basketball?), a much larger budget responsibility, and typically more control over strength and conditioning.

    His success will be directly proportional to his ability to set direction that takes care of all of the minute and sometimes trivial details that affect outcome and results, in an effective, efficient, manner. All the while, he must create an environment where his coaches buy into what they are coaching and allow them the lattitude to be innovative. His ability to create and lead an organizational culture that embraces this relentless attention to detail will make this program a success.

    All of these candidates have enough football acumen to be aware of these details, but who is going to lead, relentlessly pursue, and create a culture that is driven to follow through on them? It sounds simple, but it's far from it when it comes to managing a staff and players. He will be challenged to incite the passion to do it all right, all the time, even when others may not be looking.

    Disregard the offensive scheme, the decisions others have made, the youth or age, the job any of these candidates have done as an assistant, and try to project who we should trust to take care of the details...

    That's what's going to define success at UL...

    After watching the press conference, I think Coach Hudspeth is the guy I described above. He appears to be pretty darned relentless to me...
