We won our first game this past weekend in a close battle. Unfortunately my offensive coach somehow got the impression that my suggestion (I'm head coach) for a play at 3rd and goal was second guessing him. Ultimately he came off the field after failing to score and giving the ball up on downs huffing and puffing, loudly and violently telling me that he was going to kick my ass, etc, etc. All I did was suggest a play. I don't know if it would have worked or not but the sad thing was, the kids on the sidelines heard him and some parents heard him, even though they couldn't everything we said on the sidelines. He also later complained about some calls the refs made on the field (not questionable in my opinion) and I even heard one say, "Yeah, and I throw flags because it's fun to do..."
This guy knows the game, but I'm noticing the beginnings of a lack of patience in our 8-9 year old team. He has seemed short in practice and I think the kids have noticed. I tried calling him later that day to talk about it but he never returned my call. Any suggestions about how to best handle this? We could certainly survive without him but I'd rather not if we don't have to.
