Here is a selection of quotes from successful football coaches that illustrates the parallels between coaching and teaching.

They call it coaching, but
it’s teaching. You do not just tell them — you show them the reasons.

-Vince Lombardi, former
Green Bay Packers head coach

Treat a person as he is,
and he will remain as he is. Treat him as what he could be, and he will become
what he should be.

-Jimmy Johnson, former
Dallas Cowboys head coach

It’s the journey that matters. Learning is more important than the test. Practice well and the games will take care of themselves.

-Tony Dungy, sportscaster and former Indianapolis Colts head coach

When you want to win a game, you teach. When you lose a game, you have to learn.

-Tom Landry, former
Dallas Cowboys head coach

Knowing his coach likes him is more important to a player than anything else.

-John Madden, retired sportscaster and former Oakland Raiders head coach

Look, coaching is about human interaction and
trying to know your players.

-Bill Parcells, former
New York Giants head coach
