Coaches berating coaches on the sideline is a joke.

There is no amount of money in the world that would be worth it for me to get berated by a head coach on the sidelines in front of players, family, fans, and the whole world. What I saw on the sports page was shocking. I can’t imagine putting up with the public humiliation of a head coach screaming at me on the sideline because of a game. It’s a joke. I’ve been blessed to have coached football for free for 40 years in the worst football poverty. I have coached alone for half of my head coaching career. When I have worked as an unpaid coordinator, the first non-negotiable condition I have imposed is no public conflict, not on the sideline, not in coaching meeting. Life is too short to have some asshole scream at you and belittle you in front of people. How the hell can you face your players after being screamed at by your so-called boss who thinks a title is a license to belittle you? This reminds me of why I left two dream jobs in my prime and started 2 businesses from scratch – because of F’d-up workplaces and F’d-up bosses.

I love coaching football but I don’t love it enough to lose all self-respect and dignity by being screamed at by my boss in my workplace. I’ll stick to coaching in football poverty and being my own boss. No amount of money would ever be worth being a verbal punching bag privately, or worse, publicly. One reason why I started Blunt Talk Podcast is to be my own boss and do and say what my heart tells me without a boss treating my like a child. My sympathy to anyone who is stuck in a workplace where a boss treats you like shit.
