First, I am not a coder so I have no idea if this suggestion is possible or reasonable.

Background information: In the NFL there are the following position coaches:
QB, RB, WR, TE, OL, DL, LB, Secondary, and Special Teams. There is also an offensive coordinator and a defensive coordinator. What is different here is that there aren't coordinators. Another difference is that instead of a secondary coach we have a cb and a sf coach. There is also a FB coach here but typically not in the NFL (although that is partly due to the drop in use of FB in current football).


1st step: Restructure position coaches so that FB is combined with RB or OL or TE. CB and SF are combined into a Secondary Coach.

That brings the position coach positions down from 11 to 9.

Now we add in an offensive coordinator and a defensive coordinator. To unlock one of these coordinators you have to have all the positions coaches filled within that category. I would put special teams under defense coordinator. I know it is imbalanced offense with 5 position coaches and defense with 3 plus special teams to make 4. However, I don't think it will be that big a detriment.

As for those coordinators, they are more expensive and it is still impossible to have all coaches.

Having a coordinator would give you a training and/or game performance bonus or perhaps it helps mostly with just team chemistry and morale?

This restructure could help to create team styles such as defensive teams that run more or offensive teams with less defense.

What kind of influence in the game simulation itself should ACs lose, and what kind of influence should coordinators have - both to the training and game sim?

I asked this before - so I would say that - an AC could train players skills, but the Offensive Coor and the Defensive Coor - could train tactics { like a WR QB v CB SF pass drill} {OL RB v DL LB run drill } HC told about a running play, could then take extra skill points from run drill { better carrying in a middle run or an outside on a sweep} so more match skill than player.. Pete would that work? They call it a 7 on 7 in Football - - - you could then have as the Passing Facilities { Target} work out, or Redzone.
