The Future of the "COACHING" Roles...
« on: April 15, 2015, 06:09:02 PM »
I am going to make some adjustments to the way coaching staffs work after this season.


1 - Each head coach will have a preferred "system" be it the style of offense they play or the type of defense, which for some will be very specific and others will be open to various styles.  The HC's system will be what controls the teams RUN/PASS and BLITZ/COVERAGE ratios for each team.
(currently employed coaches will maintain their current style moving forward as their preferred style of play) This also includes the preferred TEMPO.

Some coaches may be convinced to change their style of attack based on the GM and/or their relationship.


2 - Offensive and Defensive Coordinators will be in charge of deciding what formations are run in the strategy section, they will help develop talent, and will also continue to be your scouts.


This change will eliminate the preseason task of setting the teams strategy, as Coaches will be the ones who do that, making having the right coach for your idea of your team that much more important.

This also will prevent GMs from ruining their teams by hiring power run coaches and then trying to play a air raid offense... etc etc...

But you can still hire a bad combination of coaches and coordinators, so interview well!

---

Again, currently signed coaches will not have sudden new problems with their staff, unless their was already one brewing before the change (which you will see as we move forward).

STARTING SEASON 6 (BASED ON SEASON 5'S EXPERIMENT IN NEW JERSEY)

Teams may fill a 4th coaching slot!

Want to keep a retired player on board but not ready to hand him the keys to the offense, the defense, or the entire team?

Want to have a special position coach to try and improve a certain player or group of players?

Want to hire a life coach to keep guys clean?


This "assistant coach" role is now just for these experiments!


The Assistant Coach role is one that can be named nearly anything you can think of... You may hire a 4th staff member and call them whatever you like, it just has to be sent to the LEAGUE OFFICE as:

The Carolina Panthers hire Julius Peppers as a Pass Rush Coach (Assistant Coach) starting season 6 for 3 years, $2MM per season.

This can be done for anything, but please keep that general format... example 2

The LA Sol Hire Peter Tate as college scout (assistant coach) starting season 6 for 3 years $3MM per season.


See what I'm sayin?  Good.

It is an OPTIONAL role, you do not have to spend money on this, but it DOES come from your PR BUDGET so keep your numbers in compliance!

There is no guarantee your plan will work, so don't complain to me if you hire a terrible retired player to be your QB Coach and your QB doesn't improve. 


Alright... have at it!
