Pros: learning experience
Cons: low salary
My day begins with a 5 am defensive coaching meeting, then a 6 am special teams meeting. Next, we have our strength program from 7 to 9 am. Breakfast, then 10:30 am defense coaching meeting, film breakdown, scouting report. Lunch, then all coaches meeting at 2 pm. Team practice from 3 until 5:30 pm. Then team laundry on Tuesday and Thursday. I learned how to organize and conduct coaches and team meetings. I learned how to evaluate possible recruits, abilities and character. The hardest part of the job is telling a young man his talent level is just not good enough. The most enjoyable part is when a young man final understands what to do and can do it.
