I can not really understand the logic behind sacking a coach. The players are the ones that are on the field- perhaps it is time to start sacking players! smile

Maybe all the sacked coaches over the years could start a team of their owm. They could call it the Scapegoats wink

Owners look to the coaches to keep players in line. That's why coaches get fired (sacked), and at least in the US, players cannot be because of unions.

I read somewhere that coaches account for about 0.5% of a team's wins.

Oh, ozzz, if they started firing the players, especially in North America, imagine all the lockouts and labour issues that would ensue. crazy

Therefore, they are responsible for 99.5% of the losses. smile

I am sure that they would survive. Struggling by on a mere $5,000,000 per year must be tough.

No, it means the team is responsible for 99.5% of the losses.

Didn't look into it far enough but did he quit or get sacked? (or was he pushed?)
