A head coach or director shouldn’t have to track you down for information. If you put him in a position where he’s the last to know then your time at that program will be short lived. An important part of their job is promoting an atmosphere of compliance. If you can’t include them in the day to day then you will be fired. Imagine being an assistant and thinking you don’t have to report to the HC and sit in your office for days without even saying hello. I’ve seen folks get let go simply because they didn’t talk to their director. Let them know how your recruiting is going, or any community connections you’ve made. Don’t wait until you have an emergency and then bring stuff up. Not to mention your HC can’t protect you or have your back if you don’t let them know your day to day. And why would they if you want to live on an island. And trust you will need them. So yes, do what you’re asked to do, but also keep your HC updated. If they have to circle back with you to see if you got something done or if you haven’t gone to their office to talk then you’re doing it wrong and will be let go if they have a desire to lead a winning program. Plenty of these changes happening this summer are happening because you have assistants that don’t respect their directors enough to report to them.
