Teams can hire up to three coaches. This can be done one of two ways, both which are available from the top of the player's page: a team can make one of their existing players into a coach or they can sign a free agent, including retired players, to be a coach. You will not see the buttons if you already have three coaches on staff.
Making a player into a coach will remove the player from your game roster. Like players, coaches will benefit from better equipment, specifically ones that help in Fame, XP, TXP and Game Prep.
Coaches accumulate game prep in the same fashion as players and this prep rolls over into TXP each game. Note that they still have egos and may choose to self promote instead.
The coaching staff will give bonuses based on their stats (Carrier, Enforcer, Free, Slicing, Brutality) factored with their coaching rating (a 50 coaching rating = 50% as effective as someone with a 100 coaching rating). As a staff, the stats are not averaged or totaled - the staff bonuses are created by taking the highest rated from each of the staff (ex: coach 1 has a 50 carrier x 100 coaching (resulting in 50) and coach 2 has a 90 carrier x 50 coaching (resulting in 45), the staff rating for carrier is 50.)
CPU teams get an added bonus that a better coaching staff (total coaching rating) will make it less likely they will choose a strategy not suited to the arena.
