I have recently been offered the opportunity to coach high school basketball as an assistant. I have only coached football in the past, but I've always wanted to coach basketball and/or baseball, too. I haven't made up my mind yet whether to add basketball coaching to my duties, but I'm strongly considering it. There are lots of positives (spending time coaching kids, the competition, learning more about the sport, etc.) and some potential negatives (basketball teams seem a little more prone to pre-Madonna attitudes, it's right after a very taxing football season/work schedule, etc.).
Does anyone have words of wisdom or advice on coaching a second sport, coaching basketball, etc.? Thanks in advance.
