that may be helpful and/or insightful for football coaches. Out of Bounds: Coaching
and Coaching Psychology
links include topics on winning coaching behaviors,
leadership, common traits of successful coaches, and football specific technique.

The Official Site of John Wooden, www.CoachWooden.com
This is an interesting website. Highlights include The Pyramid of Success and Favorite Maxims sections. The Pyramid of Success section features a written explanation by Wooden on each block of the pyramid, while the Maxims section features video of Wooden interviews discussing coaching and life. Overall an entertaining and insightful site.

A Leadership Primer, (PPT) General Colin Powell, Chairman (Ret), Joint Chiefs of Staff
This is an outstanding resource on General Powell’s 18 lessons of leadership. He sets the tone right off the bat with his first lesson: Being responsible sometimes means pissing people off. While developed as primer for business leaders, coaches will benefit from it as well. For example, under the topic Never neglect details he writes, “Strategy equals execution. All the great ideas and visions in the world are worthless if they can't be implemented rapidly and efficiently.” Anyone who has paced the sidelines on game day can testify to that.

Snap Central (video), Longsnapper.com
This is an outstanding resource for long snapping drills provided by Chicago Bears long snapper Patrick Mannelly. He has provided several drills, a FAQ section, and you can even contact him directly with questions. The tips section is very helpful for troubleshooting snapping problems.

Coaches are just like athletes in pressure situations. Dr. McCann has identified three key behaviors that coaches who perform well in the clutch share.

Examining Strategies Outstanding High School Football Coaches Use to Develop Life Skills and Character in Their Players (PDF), NFL Charities Grant Project

Seventeen Reasons Why Football Is Better Than High School, Herb Childress
A classic that many coaches may have already read, but still a fascinating view on why extra-curricular activities are more important than ever before. Written by a self-proclaimed hater of football, the author states: “We need a varsity education.”

What Coaches Can Learn From Great Managers: "Breaking All The Rules" In Selecting And Coaching Your Athletes, Kirsten Peterson, Ph.D., USOC Sport Psychologist
