About NFL Coaches

The National Football League Coaches Association or NFLCA is a group of all the NFL coaches in the NFL. The only exception is Bill Belichick. During the 2011 NFL Lockout, the NFLCA filed a brief in favor of the players. Many coaching contracts allow the termination of the coach with little notice and without specific cause, usually in the case of high-profile coaches with the payment of a financial settlement. Coaching is a very fickle profession, and a reversal of the team's fortune often finds last year's 'Coach of the Year' to be seeking employment in the next. Many coaches are former players of the sport themselves, and coaches of professional sports teams are sometimes retired players. The head coach usually delegates development of details such as techniques of play or placement of players on the playing surface, to offensive and deffensive coordinators and/or assistants while concentrating on larger issues such as recruitment and organizational development.
