Every coach needs to have a philosophy. But it needs to be one worth having. And it may seem like more and more coaches don’t have one at all – they’re just flying by the seat of their pants.

My coaching philosophy was the focus of a recent episode of The Football Coaching Podcast, and how you can create one for yourself. But today’s listener question asks: do high school football coaches even have a philosophy anymore? Or does it just start at the college level?
