The hiring and firing of head coaches in the National Football League is far less than perfect.
In the National Football League head coaches are hired and fired with impunity. Despite occupying the most important position in the entire organization a head coach is lucky to keep his job for more than three or four years. Long fascinated by this “revolving door” management style in our most popular professional sport, I decided to study the head coach transition process in depth. In order to do so, I discovered that it was first necessary to come up with a simple, easy to understand (but very precise) system to evaluate the performance of every man that has prowled the sidelines over the past half century. After much analysis, evaluation, and trial and error in 2009 I developed my Coaching Assessment Scoring Hierarchy (CASH tm) system for measuring a head coach’s career performance.
I have now rated 270 head coaches from the very best to very worst. Take a look at my All Time lists of the very Best and the very Worst. I am certain you agree with me in every case!
