Coaching Education

The education of a football coach is a year-round process. Whether it is understanding the X’s and O’s, executing a thorough practice plan, teaching the fundamentals, or learning how to present the game to children of different age groups, there is always something a coach can learn to better the football experience for all involved.

Coaching football goes much deeper than teaching the game on the field. Coaches are teachers, evaluators, mentors, leaders, mediators, friends, motivators, students and sometimes even parental figures. Creating a positive impact on a child through the game of football is a top priority for the Detroit Lions Football Education Division, and must be a top priority for all football coaches and administrators.

From the Coaching Education programs conducted by Lions Executive Vice President of Football Operations and General Manager Martin Mayhew and the Detroit Lions, to the first class coaching curriculum presented by USA Football, rookie to veteran coaches can secure quality information to help build their coaching wisdom.
