Hello Ariel. I see the information you have shared with me. Thanks you. I see you run a tight ship here. I am very excited to get started. Will you call Steve Brigham?
-------
Hello, Coach. I'm wanting to have an explosive type team here Long Beach. I'm wanting an aggressive offense where we are willing to throw the ball on first down and hit the other team in the mouth with a strong running back. I envision this being a team that is going to bruise you on both sides of the ball. I'm interested in signing use the head coach but I'm wanting a head coach that shares my vision for a successful franchise. You have had successful tenures where ever you have gone as an offensive coordinator. Are you interested in becoming a head coach?

  I am absolutely interested in finally becoming a head coach.  I've won impact bowls as an OC, I've developed MVPs and Rookie of the Year players... I've done it all, I'm ready to make the next step.

I like the sound of that. It sounds like you are just as excited as me. We are at the bottom of the West. I don't want us to stay that way for long.

It looks like we are going to have to sign a young QB...but I don't think that'll be a problem for you...I mean, look at the last two seasons of work in San Antonio. You have done wonders with that offense and with young QBs, but what do you feel you bring to the table for a team as a whole?

I am ready to make you an offer, but I have a final question that I like to ask. You have an Impact Bowl Ring, you've helped develop MVPs and Rookie of the Years. I have no doubt you are ready for this next step and truth be told, I want you in this position. You will be the top dog. This team will be following your lead now. What would you strive for our team personality to be? This question can help me in getting the best type of player to learn under your tutelage.

Hold up. I just saw the news. Foster Diaz just got $12mm.

I want you for $12.25 for 3 years. Diaz shouldn't get more than you. Let's do this and beat them this year.

Sounds good. I will do my research.

--------
Ariel, will you please get me in touch with Jose Mackey?
--------
Good afternoon, Jose. I wanted to call you and speak with be you about our open offensive coordinator position. We just signed Coach Brigham to be our head coach and he has expressed interest in me reaching out to former players. You played under Coach Brigham in S5 in Alabama and could see his coaching philosophy. You are also a legend here in Long Beach. I wanted to see if you were interested in being a part of our rebuild.

I'm wanting to run an aggressive, west coast offense, but my hope is that we develop a running game that will keep teams honest. Does that sound like a system you would like to help develop?

I'd love to come home to Long Beach... I'm down to run the offense, but word to the wise my man, I don't know if "an aggressive West Coast Office" is even possible. 

The West Coast game is a conservative short pass game, you dig what I'm slinging?

Hey Harold, we just signed Steve Brigham to be our head coach. I know you played under him in Alabama. I was wondering if you would be interested in coming in and being our offensive coordinator under his tutelage. I think you would be a great addition to our staff here in Long Beach. I'd like to offer you a 3 year deal worth $5mm to join us.

Wonderful! I'm glad to have you on board. I'll send that into the league office right now! Welcome to Strong Beach!
-----------
Ariel, will you get me in touch with James Atwood.
-----------
Hello James. I'm looking for a defensive coordinator here in Long Beach. I've grown accustomed to having a strong defense that keeps us in ball games. I'm looking for a defense that is going to make teams question any call they make because of our tenacity. I'm okay with running a conservative system, but I want our guys to not be afraid to hit. If someone throws on us, I want them to know that they are going to get hit and they are going to get hit hard. I'm trying to choose my words right, but I want to see aggression while not running an aggressive system.

We have a few pieces in place on our defense and I want to put pieces in place to help field the overall team vision of Coach Brigham, while fitting into my defensive coordinator's system.

What type of player do you say you need to fit your system?

My vision for this team is a pass rushing line that can disrupt the pass and stop runs in the backfield, run a lower blitz ratio with smart linebackers who can drop in coverage, and big, bruising DBs that will give WRs nightmares at night. I want a defense that is going to play so strong that no matter who we play, they know they are going to be worse for the wear the next week.

I want to run out of the nickle, eventually but it may take some time to get the personnel where we want it.

Does this sound like a vision you can embrace and employ?

I will do my best.

I would like to offer you a 3 year deal worth $5mm to be our defensive coordinator. I think with you running our defense we will be physical and dangerous.

Ariel, will you get me in touch with Jackie Andrews.

Hello Coach Andrews. I remember your playing days and reading the news of players chasing your APL sack record. Is it safe to assume you specialize in working with DL/LBs? That's what we need here in Long Beach for this position.

I'm looking for an assistant coach that will help our DL/LB and help develop a culture of tough football and effective leaders. I want to see us develop a TFL machine. In what ways have your coaching strengths been able to help players in the past? What do you feel your greatest strength as a coach is?

That's an impressive strength, I assume. I bet you get a lot of the same questions...I like the intensity though. A lot.

Let me explain where I'm coming from.

I've seen you on the field, you were lethal. I know you have coached, but I don't know you as a coach. I don't know what your specialty is. Forgive my ignorance. I imagine the interview process can be draining, but I want to know what you can bring out in others. I know you could bring it on the field, but what do you bring to our franchise and our players who will be playing on the field.

Hire me and find out.  I don't have a magic special trait that I can tell you about, I'm a coach. I  teach others what I know, and what I know lead to me piling up 37 sacks in 36 games as a Merman back in the day.

Coach Chins, it's my pleasure to talk to you today. We are looking for a minor league coach here in Long Beach. Your reputation as a good scout and coach has preceded you. What do you think is key to your helping a player with a good work ethic develop into a star?

Let me tell you a little about me... Me, I like to work closely with my players to let them find their own grove.  You don't force people into a mold, that's not the right way to go.

If one guy does better when he eats a buffet of fried foods, let him eat!  If another needs to have a zen massage after practice to re-set his chi, Sure! 

...It's all about knowing your crowd.
