    Head Coach V Manager


    0 Not allowed!
    Could someone please explain to me why we now have a Head Coach not a new Manager?

    What is the difference?

      I guess a manager is traditionally in charge of almost all aspects of the club a la Fergie and Wenger. Whereas a coaches job is to simply motivate and improve players. Who picks the team is anyones guess.

      typically Manager controls all major playing activity at the club, different levels of the squad, signing players, so on. Head Coach suggests focus on just the first team, less direct involvment in signings.

      Coach trains, is part of the recruitment team, definitely picks the bloody team. Will also have a vision about style of play (if any good), be motivational, and will engage with the club's hinterland.

      Manager ditto, plus makes occasional statements to the media about the club not giving him the tools to do the job (money for ludicrous transfer fees and salaries). Makes declarative statements about what the goals of the club should be (palpably unrealistic). Makes whiney and pitiful statements about glass celings having been reached, and the club not matching his/her ambitions.

      Pretty sure Potter will pick the team or he wouldn't be here.

      So that when someone starts bitching about not earning enough or their contract extension not being sorted the man who’s already got the job of training and motivating them can say “nothing to do with me guv” and both parties get on with training and their relationship is undamaged.

      Head coach would get paid less. Can't moan about signings. NITK

      Have we ever had a head coach who lasted more than a season?

      "Albion believe the title of head coach, rather than the more traditional manager, best suits the job Potter has taken now Ashworth is in place.
      But, in terms of the first team, it is essentially the same role as carried out by predecessor Chris Hughton."

      I always see a Head Coach as having a say in transfers, but predominantly, he's given a group of players, and it's his job to get the best out of them.

      A manager has a greater involvement in transfers, he often does the "wheeling and dealing" with those dealings getting approved or otherwise on high.
