This is just a small list of what new HD coaches should take a look at.  I'm sure there are many other threads that are must reads for coaches that aren't on this list.  I encourage all new coaches to utilize the search function on the forums to help answer their questions.  Also, I recommend that any coach looking to improve to contact an accomplished veteran coach.  I had a few help me when I started here and still send sitemails to some coaches to bounce ideas off.  After a couple seasons, I noticed that I was struggling and had a HD user who agreed to mentor me.  He gave me his phone number and we texted back and forth for 6 months or so.  Sadly, I think he left this site and I remember his first name but not his user name.  But the point is that many on here are very helpful and these forums are full of great information.  What other threads could help coaches (specifically newer coaches)?

kind of a shameless plug, i guess, but i would suggest the interview i did several months back as well. its got a lot of background info and i ask all my mentees to read it to provide a framework to work in, before i dig deep into their own teams and issues.

warning: this is a LONG interview, i told WIS i answered all the questions but it was way too long, so please just pick their favorites, but they wanted to post all of it, so they did.

All you really need is to read aejones' thread and you're good to go, imo. As far as just starting the game goes. Pretty much nailed it

i think the point of the list was to provide new coaches insightful reads for educational purposes. the fredpaull thread causes you to lose at least 5 IQ points and you immediately take three steps back in your coaching career.
