House Divided

Competitive spirit. Passion to win. Drive to be the best. These qualities we admire in our husbands as they coach, but most women don’t want these characteristics to carry over into the marriage- even though coaches’ wives can be over the top competitive as well! Being competitive is defined this way: “…trying to win a contest or be more successful than others…having a strong desire to win or be the best at something.”

Decisions, Decisions...

I think that making decisions is one of the hardest parts of being a coach. There are millions of small decisions that must be made with wisdom just to keep a program running, and I am amazed at how the outcome of a game often hinges on one big decision- like what final play to call for the last ten seconds of the game! On top of that, everyone around gets to decide if he made a good decision or not! And sometimes his decisions are highlighted on the front page of the newspaper.
