To have a winning team, a lot of things need to fall into place. You need to put in the right offensive and defensive schemes to help your players succeed. But you also need to have a deep sense of what their needs are as young adults when they’re not playing football. There are some coaches who have been unbelievably successful in the X’s and O’s aspects of this job, and that will work for them for a short period of time. There are other coaches who excel mostly at building relationships, and they’re able to lean on that to sustain success. But ultimately, unless you’re able to blend both of those things together, you won’t have the foundation you need to succeed long term, which is what we plan to do here.
