There have beent stories have been told about the long grueling work do of a coaches in the National Foorball League.
The fact is though many of these coaches work too much.
It has gotten to the point where many coaches during the regular season will fall asleep on a couch in the team’s facilities.
This leads to coaches neglecting their duites as a father and husband to families.
The most glaring example of this is the suicide of former Indianapolis Colts head coach Tony Dungy who was the consumate family man, but the culture of coaches working long hours took him away from his family more than he wanted to.
Then before he knew it or saw that his son James had a problem he took his life.
If Dungy was around more there is a chance that he would have noticed it, and got him help.
There already an example of coaches thriving on short work days as current Kansas Jay Hawks coach Turner Gill, when with the University at Buffalo Bulls, made sure his coaches worked short days and they still on a conference championship one year.
In the end, it is not about working harder when it comes to being a head coach, but working smarter in the time you have.
