Philosophy

August 26, 2013

There is a lot of talk about coaching philosophies. I would suspect that every big time coach has been asked many times “what is your coaching philosophy?” If they are honest, they only have one philosophy and that is to WIN. You can spin the words any way you want, but what it boils down to is winning. They might talk for 5 minutes after a game on how well the team played, but by morning only whether you won will be important to anyone. Unfortunately, there are still a lot of coaches out there who believe winning at any cost is the answer. These are the guys that at lower levels berate players, they upset parents, and usually, they don’t last very long. At the highest levels, these are the guys that bend the rules. They look the other way when they are recruiting, have different rules for star players, and generally win but always have the university on some type of NCAA watch list. Until the NCAA gets tough, these guys will exist and will win because they have little respect or little regard for how they are going to accomplish that. That is why guys like Charlie Cole at Miami of Ohio was such a breath of fresh air. I would suspect that there were more at Charlie’s funeral than will ever be at some of the champion coaches’ funerals. Charlie’s philosophy was “I will take who I get, make them the best I can, and no matter what happens will be able to sleep at night.”
