During the period of 1979­1989, the San Francisco 49ers' focus on pass defense was realized when George Seifert was promoted in 1983 to coordinate the 49ers'  defense after serving as the team's defensive backs coach. The leadership backbone of the 49ers was then completed when equally talented Bill McPherson was  assigned to focus on the team's run defense. Establishing the Head Coach's Meeting Schedule Because of the substantial pressures and stresses that a head coach faces, he may be predisposed to delegate as much responsibility as possible and to spend a  considerable amount of time in his office. In the extreme, such an emotional overload can cause him to become almost dysfunctional. By failing out of touch with the various aspects of the team dynamic, he may lose some of his ability to effectively participate in the effort to make the team successful. In order to avoid such a situation, as the head coach, you must develop and adhere to a systematic schedule that will require you to interact with every level of the  team on a regular basis. Among the steps that you should undertake to ensure that your schedule addresses your needs in this regard are the following: •    Hold strategy meetings several times a week with both of your coordinators (e. g. , early in the week, mid­ week, and prior to the game) to specifically discuss your  Page 100   opponent's strengths and weaknesses. You should coordinate and determine the total, overall game plan and  communicate that perspective with your coordinators. You should also hold discussions with your entire staff  on their impressions, determinations and recommendations regarding the game plan. • Hold a specific meeting (usually by Wednesday) in order to have a firm, complete grip on contingency  decisions and who will participate directly in extreme circumstances (e. g. , backed up of fense, 4th down  decisions, 3rd down on goal line, etc. ). • Hold two scheduled weekly meetings with the special teams coach, who should present his initials plans  during the first meeting and his final plans during the second session. • Establish a format for the practice week in which you will sit in on selected position meetings, both  announced and unannounced. • Establish and maintain appointed meeting times with the athletic trainer, conditioning coach and team  physicians. • Hold at least one weekly meeting where the offensive, defensive and special teams coordinators meet  together to more fully appreciate each other's plans of attack and how they might affect their individual  plans. This meeting is also an excellent time to bring these specific coaches up to speed on what you have  learned from your meetings with the athletic training and medical staffs. • Hold regularly scheduled meetings with ownership, the CEO and/or the DOO to outline and review ongoing  processes involving the team. Coaches who can outline plays on a blackboard are a dime a dozen. The ones who win get inside their players and  encourage.
