You have just been appointed offensive coordinator for your school. What now? It is extremely important for a potential offensive coordinator to clearly and specifically understand what his role will be as a team's offensive coordinator. The underlying basis of this statement is to help a coordinator, or would-be coordinator, be sure that he is fully aware of his role as that team s offensive coordinator, as designated by the head coach. Without question, the best time to do this is before the would-be offensive coordinator accepts the all-important position. In other words, it is essential that he knows what he is getting into when he accepts the position.

The Offensive Coordinator's Football Handbook, by Steve Axman, is the definitive handbook for the coach in that scenario. This book goes in-depth to deliver the comprehensive handbook the football coach is looking for in order to be successful from day 1.
