A bit of a belated announcement, but I reviewed Gary Myers’ Coaching Confidential in the November 21 edition of Scramble for the Ball over at Football Outsiders. I won’t copy and paste my full review here, but will note my conclusion that rather than a comprehensive book on what it is like to be an NFL coach, Coaching Confidential instead feels more like “Storytime with Famous Coaches.” For what it is, it is at times a terrifically entertaining book, and one I read through quickly and with pleasure. I did not find it, however, to be the great book I was hoping it would be.
