Good coaching means a lot more than we give it credit for.
A bad season or a slow start shouldn't automatically put coaches on the hot seat. Yet, every season and in every sport, we see it. If it were as easy to get fired from your job as it is for, say, an NBA coach, you'd spend a lot of time wringing your hands over a trash can fire. Sports section editorials and talk radio lynch mobs across the country exist to give coaches pink slips. Nothing in sports is taken for granted like a good coach and they're not as replaceable as we all assume.
