There are several people coming out of the woodwork after and 0-4 start that do not like the Head Coach. It seems some people don't like the fact that he yells at players and/or cuts players who don't buy into the system or who just are not very good. That's fine. Everyone gets to have their opinion. Here's my question. If you are looking for a coach, what traits are you looking for? I'm curious if people can say some tangible traits they would like to see in a Head Coach. I don't want to hear things like, "a proven winner" or "successful everywhere he goes". These things are a given and I'm really referring more to the traits that deal with players and schemes. I'm curious to see what everyone thinks a good coach is. Here are some of the things I want in mine...
Background : Defensive minded. I like good, aggressive, hit you in the mouth defense. I also believe that usually these types of coaches instill a toughness into the offense as well (save Herm Edwards)
Personality : Will not accept failure from players and other coaches. Holds people accountable. Expects players to know what to do once they get on the field. Some won't like it but that's ok. Also knows that players win games, not the coaches. Must be able to teach the finer details of the game (situations, rules, technique) to all players. Also humble enough to seek out the best coaches available to help in position and coordinator roles.
Anyway, there's a start. I could go on and on but I'm more interested in what everyone else wants in their coach.
