I find young kids. I enjoy coaching and enjoy making them better players.
– Graham Roberts
I know so many players who say they wouldn’t entertain coaching, until they retire that is, and then they want to take their coaching badges. I suspect this might happen with David Beckham.
– Gordon Taylor
I tried the broadcasting thing, the coaching thing, but I’ll never replace the competitive feeling of being out on the field when we were players.
– Gary Carter
When I have the urge to get back to coaching, I lie down and wait until it passes.
– Hank Stram
If you’ve got aspirations to be a manager or coach, obviously coaching your country would be a great honour.
– Gary Speed
In coaching, you don’t ever really have that joyful fun, but there’s no question that it’s enjoyable.
– George Karl
We probably spend more time talking about individual players in our coaching sessions than anything else.
– Hayden Fry
Sometimes the best coaching advice you can get is simple acknowledgement that there’s nothing else you could have done.
– Hannah Kearney
In international football you have 10 games a season, with players from different clubs. There’s no time for proper coaching; they’re just recovering from playing on the Saturday.
– Graham Taylor
Teaching players during practices was what coaching was all about to me.
– John Wooden
In the end, it’s about the teaching, and what I always loved about coaching was the practices. Not the games, not the tournaments, not the alumni stuff. But teaching the players during practice was what coaching was all about to me.
I can’t confirm any rumors. I’m happy doing what I’m doing. I have no interest in going back to coaching.
– Jimmy Johnson
I really enjoyed coaching.
– Joe Paterno
People say, ‘Is broadcasting the same as coaching?’ I say, ‘Hell, no.’ Coaching, you win and lose. Broadcasting, you don’t win and lose. Coaching was a lot bigger than broadcasting.
– John Madden
I want to see if the player communicates with his teammates and how he responds to coaching. Another thing to remember is players’ bodies can develop better than their skills.
– Isaiah Thomas
To teach an academic subject is certainly not easy, but compared to coaching, it is. We can say ‘two plus two is four’ to every kid and be sure that we are right. But in coaching, we have to literally get to the soul of the people we are dealing with.
You never know, I might get back into coaching someday.
– Brad Gilbert
Business coaching and the personal development and self-help industry is considered to be one of the booming industries today.
– Brendon Burchard
It’s been the video game ever since I got out of coaching. Even when I was an announcer, fewer and fewer people remembered me as ‘Coach,’ and as the years went on, people just started knowing me from the game.
The thing that drives most coaches out of coaching in college is they get tired of the grind of recruiting.
– Bobby Bowden
If I miss coaching that much, I could go to some little school where they didn’t recruit, where all the kids wanted to go. I believe I could find somewhere to coach.
– Bear Bryant
I wrote a book on life coaching, because my life became my own reference point how to live.
– Anupam Kher
I’m not sure if I’m going to get into coaching. I’m sure I’ll stay in soccer somehow.
– Abby Wambach
I don’t see myself coaching gymnastics. I see myself involved in the sport in the future but involved in other things as well.
– Aly Raisman
I was a pretty good coach and working with marketing was like coaching.
– Bernard Ebbers
And I would be the first to admit that probably, in a lot of press conferences over the time that I have been in coaching, indulging my own sense of humor at press conferences has not been greatly to my benefit.
– Bobby Knight
I won’t miss coaching. What you miss is that camaraderie with those boys and the other coaches. You miss that.
You have to remember that coaching wasn’t sophisticated back then – you didn’t have the camps, clinics and all the technical advances that are available today – so from that standpoint, playing with a cast on my arm was a fortunate event in my life.
– Bob Cousy
During my 40-year coaching career at West Point, Indiana and Texas Tech, my teams reached the Final Four on five occasions, winning the national championship three times.
Look, coaching is about human interaction and trying to know your players. Any coach would tell you that. I’m no different.
– Bill Parcells
