Imagine a professional sports team without a mentor coaching it from behind the bench. Better yet, imagine a Super Bowl game with no coach yelling, motivating, and jumping with thrill every time there is a blowout. Coaches are the lifeline of any team. No matter what the level of play is, if you want to succeed you need a coach, a really good one on top of that. Now only if you thought that a coaching is all about breaking down tape and doodling x's and o's, know that a coach has to do a lot more than that. Coaches are the real role models for their teams, a big inspiration, and a guiding force. Coaches invest in the success of athletes. At times, they are the ones who makes winning possible, thanks to the dedication, determination, diligence, and discipline they evoke within their players. Not just that, they also help eliminate all kind of stresses and assist players stay more focused. America has been a cradle of some really smart, talented, and able coaches who have steered America's greatest athletes and teams to grand victories. Let u learn about their timeline, trivia, and facts in the biographies here.
