Submit Recommendations
The recommendations which were
submitted as the result of findings by
the executive committee of the M
club, and the discussion on the vari-
ous points, follow:.
"I. The Coaching System, with re-
gard to football. There should be a
coaching staff along the following
lines: a head coach in general charge
and a minimum of 10 well paid assist-
ant coaches, whose appointment
should be subject to the approval of
the head coach. The work of the head
coach being to plan, systematize and
regulate te general scheme of coach-
ing, to instruct the assistant coaches,
to direct their work on the field, and
to plan and oversee the work for var-
sity scrubs, and freshmen. There
should be at least three coaches for
the freshmen team, two for the scrubs,
and four for the varsity. The idea be-
hind this plan being that the head
coach should be ant executive closely
in touch with his assistants and their
work, but leaving most of the detail
