Coaching Confidential chronicles a year in the life of an NFL head coach--but not just one head coach. Drawing on interviews with at least 20 current and former head coaches (including Super Bowl winners Bill Parcells, Tom Coughlin, Jimmy Johnson, Tony Dungy, Sean Payton, Mike Shanahan, Dick Vermeil, Mike Holmgren, Brian Billick, and Joe Gibbs), Gary Myers has drawn a composite portrait of the professional and personal challenges of the job. From the draft, free agency, big trades, training camp, family crises, player troubles, coaching relationships with members of the staff, coach-owner dynamics, rivalries, Xs and Os, the playoffs--all the way to the Super Bowl, Coaching Confidential gives every football fan the behind-the-scenes stories they want.
Just getting to Sunday is almost a relief for NFL head coaches. It's during that three-hour window 16 days a year when they can simply concentrate on what they do best, which is trying to win football games. But the job is, of course, much more than that.
