I'm always interested in coaching and their roster building philosophies.
I live in BC and have kept track of Buono and his consistent philosophies.
He believes in:
The importance of the 3rd string QB: From Garcia, Dickenson, Printers, Reilly, Jennings. All third string guys who have moved to starter/excellence. He has stated that if the 3rd string is not ready to overtake the second string then he is cut after year two. Everything is about succession.
Field Goals: He has stated that nothing is more demoralizing to an offense than to move down the field and then miss the FG. So he always wants the good kicker
Running Game: Will always try to have two starting calibre RB on the roster and rotate. Wants 5-6 ypc
Ratio: Always will start a ratio busting Canadian somewhere almost every year.
Leadership: Is known to establish a leadership committee of players who came to him with suggestions
Termination: Is somewhat ruthless. When a player's greatest strength is slipping eversomuch they are replaced before that slippage is acknowledged.
What are other philosophies?
