Great article on new Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy. Nagy is a disciple of Andy Reid, a legend for his offensive innovation. This piece on Nagy gives the reader a glimpse into his creative process and there are certainly concepts a basketball coach can take from him. There were several things i liked in here: cool whiteboard concept, Helfrich’s line about vision, Daniel’s quote about confidence and how Nagy seeks input from his players.
Overall, Nagy says, the quest is to find the proper volume of concepts and plays to implement. Frequently, he has noticed, losing streaks can be traced back to an unintentional overloading.
“As a staff you say, OK, we were doing way too much,” Nagy says. “We weren’t letting the players play. They were thinking too much. Now let’s pull back. … That whole less-is-more thing.”
