    A Job Guide for Young Coaches

    by Jay Gore & Bob Gecewich, McGavock (TN) High School

    In 2010 I became the head football coach at an inner-city school in Nashville. In doing so, I inherited a young assistant coach by the name of Bob Gecewich. After several years of coaching together, Bob moved on and has since become a head coach himself. Over the years our friendship and respect for each other have remained. We talk often, usually about attacking opponents or new schemes that we have run across. It seems that more often we talk about common issues that we both encounter as head coaches; dealing with parents, weight room programs, fundraising, etc. On multiple occasions, the conversation has turned toward hiring and mentoring young coaches and the challenges that it presents.

    Achieving Level II in Athletics

    by Dr. Richard Fowler, Professor of Psychology, Truett McConnell University

    Even though most athletes would tell the coach that they want to perform at their ultimate level of play, the reality is many settle for what would be called a Level I performance. Both the coach and player are unaware that they are not reaching their full potential. Level I performance can be described as an athlete who is faithful in practice carefully studies game film at team meetings and endorses the system outlined by his/her coach.
