Re Coaching staff: if I'm Joe Schoene...

I call in the entire coaching and office staff and express appreciation for a first year job well done with hefty bonuses and raises. Increase responsibilities with new titles too. Share the excitement for what's coming in year 2, and sell the idea that this is going to be a great place to be now and going forward. Appeal to their pride and ownership of their passion for seeing the job through to completion (whatever that may be). Etc., etc.

Of course, wish them well with any opportunities outside the organization but encourage them to be patient and seek a good opportunity. Don't be desperate and don't let it be about the dollars cause we will do what we can to keep you here.

If Jerry Jones can keep his assistants by paying them through the nose, despite his meddling, I'd like to think Schoene, and Mara, could do likewise but better.

i'd undermine their confidence and let them know if they leave the

Giants it's very unlikely they'll succeed. They're better off playing it safe and staying with a job that they're likely to be able to hang onto.

Kidding aside, at the first company I worked at this was their approach to employee retention. I like the OP approach better.
I hope Joe Schoen reads this...

Fall into and out of love with co-ordinators in a hurry

If they stay, good, if they move on, good for them. Just keep improving the roster I m pretty confident Daboll has other guys he trusts.

it wont mean much.. People need to remember there are only 32 of a specific job available. If there is an opening you NEED to interview for it in most cases.

Let's put this in perspective.

I'm sure that if your boss called a meeting, and told the employees that instead of aspiring for advancement to a higher position that would pay better, they should "take one for the team" because the company is trying to be the best in it's field.

Yep, that ALWAYS goes well, right?

Reality is that people in the positions that these coaches are in do the long hours, for little pay, and much abuse because they want to advance in their field. Any team trying this will get a reputation as one that assistants should NOT go to.

You don't want that reputation. There are always great coaches out there that just need a chance. A good front office will allow upward movement to encourage those coaches to come there.

Coaching isn't forever for most of these guys. The key to getting good coaches is being an attractive place to be.
