Who is coaching your son?

Post by meg1 on 6/15/2015, 10:08 am

You have to ask yourself who is coaching my son and does he really know what he is talking about?  Did your son's coach grow up as a missionaries kid, playing soccer in the streets of Brazil?  Was he a two time NCAA Soccer All American?  Leading scorer on his College soccer team?  Did he play for the US Olympic team?  Did he play professional soccer in both the US and Europe?  Does he hold a class USSF B license? Has he had over 20 years of coaching and training experience?  Google your coach then Google my son's coach, Steve Long.  By the way Samba King Soccer is looking for more 03 boys that want to go from good to great.  Want to be "Rei da Bola"?

Your coach has definitely created quite a resume as a player. Definitely something to be proud of!

In my 43 years on this earth, it has been proven over and over again; players who were stars have a hard time transitioning to becoming great coaches.
In NBA, one of the best coaches ever Phil Jackson, did have a fairly long NBA career as a player coming off the bench. In fact as you look at the winningest coaches such as Poppa in San Antonio, Carlisle in Dallas, Don Nelson, Pat Riley there were all serviceable players during their pro careers at best. Look at the legends Magic, Larry Bird, Jordan, etc, none of these were coaches that set world on fire.
In NFL, Mike Ditka is the only notable player that was able to have a long successful career as a player and as a coach. In a recent Bleachers article it lists Ditka as the top player then names like Jim Harbough, Dan Reeves, and Gary Kubiak finding spots in the top 10. Names like Tom Landry, Chuck Knoll, Belicheat in NE, Lombardi, never lit the world on fire as coaches but they were great teachers and motivators (probably due to alot of time on sidelines watching as players).
Even within our own glorious sport Arsene Wenger, Carlos Parreira, Arrigo Sacchi, Jose Mourinho, Rafael Benetiz, Andrew Villas Boas, Brendan Rodgers and Roy Hodgson are all some of the top soccer minds but none of these had professional careers that would impress anyone not at their family reunions.
Yes having the game experience can help some, being able to mentor in certain situations, which prior experience might come in handy, but it does not give them the ability to teach others.
I want a teacher, a mentor, a disciplinarian, a confidant coaching my son. I want someone my son can relate to and respect. Problem is it is harder to proove those things on a resume or a website. It has to be experienced.
