Now these are some good questions. Time to get back in a different sort of mailbag.
Usually when we do a mailbag show, it’s just a huge collection of stuff that wasn’t enough for a full episode from my Twitter DM’s. Not this time.

You finally got the big promotion. Your first coordinator gig. How do you prepare old coaches for the new changes?
You can’t teach an old dog new tricks. That’s the saying. And if that’s true about the old dogs on your coaching staff, you might be in for a long season. Continue reading “Coaching Your Coaches | QC Episode 205”
You know something is not right. This is not the job for you. How do you know the right time to look for a new team?
Know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em. Kenny Rogers was right. Or The Gambler. Someone knew what they were talking about. Knowing when to walk away is tough. Continue reading “When Is It Time to Leave? | QC Episode 199”
You’ve tried everything to get your Quarterbacks to throw the ball on time. But they still hold the ball too long!
