  • The purpose of this study was to understand the process of leadership in coaching football as it related to my personal experiences as a football coach. The results are based on the analysis of my coach narratives over a two-year period of coaching with a collegiate and high school level football team. Through a comprehensive literature review I have illustrated the development of leadership theory, from theories of transactional to more modern conceptions of transformational leadership. This study shows how coaching practices are rooted in coaches’ need to develop and establish a credible image that enables them to rely on preferred practices. It is through the process of reflection that I am able to identify and understand the motives underlying my practices that leads to a deepening awareness and to more transformational leader behaviors. In linking leadership to coaching I present an innovative approach to more effective coach leadership practices.
