Before you start:
• Be sure you have a mission statement that is current with your current thinking
and then stay committed to that statement. Be sure your staff and players
understand
• Make sure your philosophy of coaching, of defense, of offense and of dealing
with players and other constituents is clear-cut and understood by yourself and
staff.
• Leave a paper trail. Keep copies of important communications with all relevant
parties. Notes, dates & times of any significant meeting with players, media, etc
can be of value.
