Going along with that. The best resume builder as a sprint coach with no bigtime coaching experience may just be to roid out and run 10.20 yourself. Aka join the sea of very stellar former athletes that are very average current coaches.
Amen. It’s actually sickening to see some of the mediocrity being put on a pedestal as elite sprint coaches when you hear guys like Pfaff and Tellez talk the others are no where even in the same ballpark (at least for sprinting, technique, training management, etc). I will say that these guy often come with an immediate confidence boost and can relay experiences of competing at the highest level.
Motor learning research actually supports the notion that being able to do something has almost zero bearing on how well you can teach that activity.
