I was brought in to more or less be a second set of eyes and see things the head coach might be missing. (especially as the team size grew) In one particular instance I had to ask the head coach to re-evaluate some of the advice he was given one particular fighter. This kid was ready to turn down a very well paying job in order to pursue a professional MMA career. He was good, and had a lot of natural talent, but he wasn't anything amazing. The coach wasn't being honest with himself or the kids ability and was pushing him into an MMA career versus a job that started at $30.00 an hour with plenty of overtime paying $45 an hour... and that was just the starting wage. If the kid was a little younger and amazing, I'd have maybe considered it, but in this particular case, the Job and MMA as a hobby made way more sense than trying to turn pro and struggling through the ranks.
This is true. We recently had a kid that was arguably the most talented kid in the gym leave because his heart wasn't in it. Boxing is the toughest sport in the world (imo) and if you aren't willing to leave your heart and soul in the ring, then you don't belong in there.

You have to see what a kid is made of and see if he's willing to really think about this as a career.
