I spent most of Monday and Tuesday interviewing for a coaching job. Most of the rest of the week was spent trying to recover from the time zone change.
Loyalty, anticipating the head coaches needs, and not just agreeing with everything the head coach says are three keys to being a good assistant coach.
I was once told about a case of assistant coaches bad-mouthing the head coach in a way that got back to the players. Totally unprofessional.
The focus this week was mainly on the European professional coaching job market, though there were a couple of US-related developments.
The only real development of note from the past week is that I made the short list for a head coach position in Europe.
Not a great deal to report this week. Put in for a few more assistant jobs and one head coaching position. Other than that, it's been pretty quiet.
It's been a reasonably active last week on the job front, though as yet still with nothing to show for it but some additions to the stack of rejections.
