Fat Football Coaches

Postby mikus » Sat Sep 02, 2006 8:44 pm

Does anyone find it strange that there are overweight football coaches, at both the NFL and college levels? These guys have access to all the facilities, trainers, etc. Don't you think they should take pride in the way they look, especially when it comes to the fact that they are supposed to lead the athletic, in-shape players? I would have trouble taking conditioning advice from an overweight head coach, but is that just me?

I can't trust a skinny football coach.

Except for Tom Landry.

Alright, let me rephrase this.

If you were a football coach, would you be overweight?

I know I would take advantage of the facilities available. I saw Joe Gibbs running with the Redskins last week. I know Nick Saban still works out, and he used to show the cornerbacks how to play their position at LSU.

I know Parcells is a great coach, he's got a great mind. But would it kill him to run a couple days a week, or lift some weights? I don't think so.

ok now I see what you're saying. but like someone said, it would be very difficult to exercise while still doing everythin you need to do in order to run the ship. I remember reading that parcells sometimes showed up at 3 am and was the last one to leave at night.... sometimes you just cant do it regardless of how much you'd like to because your duty as head coach comes first

If it was me, I'd definitely try to keep in shape during the offfseason. But definitely not during the season because my team needs me and I'd have to give my all to stay ahead or to be a part of such a competitive business... not all great leaders lead by example

I find a lot of football coaches are fat for many reasons...

- Stress is a big fat causing culprit

- They never have time to workout or do much exercise, they are busy going over videos in their freetime and over plays and not only that they have to somehow find time with their family inbetween?

- They drink like a fish and eat like an elephant after every lost and every night before the game.

- People who work overtime are 70% more likely to be obese, study shows, and these guys put in more overtime hours than anyone.
