I want to be a coach
“Mum, I wanna be a coach!”. This could be the title of new children’s movie.
But in last several days or better say weeks in Serbian media one story looks like this.
One of ex Red Star players, Milan Gurovic offering himself through media and stated many times that he is ready to take over Red Star Head coaching position without a day of coaching experience. Giving his support to dozens of Red Star fans who are angry at club’s board due to bad results and financial situation in this season, Gurovic repeated once again his wish to coach Red Star.
For me as a coach, with some 16 years of coaching experience, I must say, this is nonsense. Being a good basketball player, and Gurovic was a really good player with impressive career, doesn’t necessary means that you have a great potential to be a coach.
All we coaches mostly started as a coaches for youth teams, and through years of working, improving, visiting clinics, reading books, became coaches for senior teams on high level. That’s the process, any anybody who doesn’t understand how difficult is this profession, can’t even imagine to be coach without experience.
Check Gurovic career here.
Wish him all the best, and one advice. Man, start from the beginning, start with kids U14, U16 or U18 teams, use your knowledge as a player and teach them. After years of experience and possibly good results, maybe you will get an offer from some team to take over Head coaching position of senior team. Offering yourself will not help you much in this job.
