“You are only as good as the people you hire." -Ray Kroc

“Actions talk around here, so my interactions with my staff are essential in giving the right impression to the players.  If the players see that the head coach and the staff have good cohesion, then the team will fall in line, also.” –Dale Brown

"The man who gets the most satisfactory results is not always the man with the most brilliant single mind, but rather the man who can best coordinate the brains and talents of his associates." -Alton Jones
"The assistants are the backbone of our success, really -- they're the ones who do most of the coaching. On a team basis, I do a percentage of it, but they actually do a far greater percentage of it. I think there is a balance. You want everybody to work together. At the same time, you want people to be able to work independently and come up with things on their own and handle problems on their own. But it's all in the context of a team framework." –Bill Belichick

“As a young head coach, hire an older, former head coach who knows a lot of the issues.” –Eddie Fogler

“Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do, and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.” -George S. Patton, Jr.
