Re: Coaching options

I think Rivera is too nice.  I think this team needs someone who can scare them and really convince them their jobs and livelihood depend on production.  There appears to be a lack of urgency overall with the team.  The "locker room" has been criticized for having no leaders, while players are an important component of leadership the Head Coach is the leader.  If we have a lack of leadership which Hurney stated when he left that is Rivera's fault.

Re: Coaching options

Head Coach...culture setter...culture setting holdertooer...expectations setter...expectation holdertooer...for everyone that has a role with the team...coaches, players, scouts, trainers, equipment folk...The HC provides roles, responsibilities and holds folks to those expectations..

The Head Coach cannot become the primary alibi and excuse maker for the team...because making alibi's and excuses becomes a existing status quo and a lossing habit and/or a lossing culture!!!!

The Head Coach must understand that He must be the Buck Starts and Stops with himself guy...he must understand that the culture he creates and holds his staff and team too HAS DIRECT BARRING UPON SUCCESS AND LACK OF SUCCESS...THEREFORE HIS VERY JOB STATUS...EMPLOYEED OR UNEMPLOYEED!!!!

Re: Coaching options

i tend to think that Coach Rivera inadvertently/subconsciously created/extended a not having to win now expectation/culture with all his talk about being a youthful team in process of building...learning what it takes to win etc.,

In point of fact, when looking at the clubs starters the past 2 seasons, they have/had plenty of veteran players starting and they should have been held to a higher standard of winning in the here and now!

Speaking of NOW...well Rivera is NOW scrambling to get these guys up to speed on winning...cuz he has in a certain sense...cooked his own goose by not holding them to a win in the now standard from the jump!!!!!
