Inhaltsangabe: How much influence does an NFL head coach really have on a team?s win-loss record? Is the head coach the most important member of a professional football team? What separates a great coach from an average coach? Author Brad Adler answers these questions and many others in the first book ever to examine the magnitude of a head coach?s impact on an NFL franchise.
Coaching Matters contends that great coaches will win regardless of the talent or conditions that surround them. Superior coaches will be successful despite the incompetence of the players or the losing atmosphere they inherit. Adler shows that the elite head coach, in and of himself, is capable of producing and sustaining victory.
The title has a dual meaning. First, that coaching does indeed matter?much more than people believe. And second, Adler investigates how ?coaching matters? are handled. He documents the careers of ten of the greatest modern-day NFL coaches and clearly establishes each man?s significance relative to his team?s success. The book examines the philosophies and tactics that helped distinguish each coach as a preeminent leader and innovator. It also analyzes how they conveyed their strategies and techniques and discusses the problems with filling the dual roles of coach and general manager.
Finally, Adler identifies and evaluates the personality traits and characteristics most often associated with outstanding coaches in an effort to establish a reliable basis for implementing the systematic ?coach-predictor,? a method for gauging the effectiveness of potential NFL head coaches. Coaching Matters: Leadership and Tactics of the NFL'S Ten Greatest Coaches is the definitive book on NFL coaching and a must-read for any football fan.
Vom Verlag: "Part self-help motivation, part history, Coaching Matters is a must read that takes you inside the real world of the NFL.The author has provided the most in-depth analysis of the NFL’s major problem today, that of the successful organization being ham-strung by salary caps and free agency. The common denominators he describes that link successful coaches from Paul Brown through Mike Holmgren--single purpose, flexibility, and strength of character--would probably parallel those of the greatest generals. Thank you, Brad Adler, as I will now use Coaching Matters as a reference." --Dan Reeves, head coach, Atlanta Falcons
"Coaching Matters is a collection of wonderful accounts of the men who were the best coaches in the game. It not only tells how they were able to reach the highest of heights, but gives us an insight into why. Coaching does matter! I know firsthand that if it hadn't been for Joe Gibbs, my career would never have included an MVP season or a world championship. This book is a must for learning why winners are winners." --Joe Theismann, ESPN announcer
