:confused; I am(was) the Off. Coordinator for a youth team, this is our 2nd week of practice(1st in pads). We were supposed to be installing a youth version of the Pistol, the problem was settling on a QB. I feel like I have had the rug pulled out from under me as the assistant offensive coach has manuevered his son(no speed, no arm) into the QB spot(with the approval of the HC). He convinced the HC we should get all our best backs on the field at the same time(where as I wanted to rotate the TB position and get some of your faster, younger kids at the slots). Now we are mixing power formations with spread formations and relying on the HB pass to get the ball downfield. I'm confused, dejected and disappointed. I'd appreciate some friendly advice.
Unfortunately you seem to have run into a guy who doesnt know how to operate with a staff. If he makes a person the offensive coordinator and then allows someone else to usurp that guy your better off just assisting where possible and taking one for the team. To my mind it just shows a lack of integrity and understanding but thats just my opinion.
It wouldn't hurt to ask him why you were replaced but the answer might be something you wont like.
As others have said in the end be prepared to make the best of it and work with he kids where you can.
Its not about how much YOU know about the game, its about how much you share that knowledge with the people around you.

keep your head up and stay humble. what really matters is the kids having the time of there lives. im going to the same thing here in detroit. the "head coach" thinks he knows what he doing because of age, but it does not work for him in this situration. let those guys learn the hard way.......i know there are others involve in the team and those coaching with there kids out there. you just stay firm and make the others better so they can pick up the slack when the others dont do so well..peace form a hurrican
