Coaching Changes

I say this every year, but I have found no evidence that suggests that your coaching staff has any impact on your team in a pure sim like this. Any changes in the coaching strategy as a result of a new coaching staff can be negated through user intervention. That being said, I like to reveal coaching changes since I believe most of us are curious about them.

You STILL push that propaganda? Coaches make or break teams. Single biggest off-season decision. Stop misleading the player-base

Always good to see former players entering the league as coaches.

Former players are the only new entrants into the pool of candidates. If this game didn't have a 30 season limit, you would see that former players would eventually make up 100% of the coaching staffs.
