Even the most casual sports fan is likely to wonder why anyone would want to be a coach. When you see that top-level college football coaches can get multi-million-dollar buyouts when they get fired after less-than-successful records, you think that money might be the reason. You would be wrong.

The money is nice, but the top pro and college coaches aren’t any more dedicated to their profession than those who coach youth sports or scholastic teams. The well-paid, low-paid and volunteer coaches put in long hours and sacrifice time with their family.
