Yep, my hubby coaches high school football too. His pre season starts on Mon (their league has rules about how soon before the season they can start with organised team events). So starting Monday he works from 8 - 4, then practice from 6:30 - 8:30, which really means 6 - 9 for him (at least). Then once school starts he goes right from work to practice and might be home by 7, just in time to eat and work on more football. He's a volunteer coach, so it's all his own time.
But I don't mind, the kids and I go to all his home games (we don't travel the 3 hours one way to away games), I love football and he loves it. One of the other wives was saying she "lets" her hubby coach because he's giving back ... I don't, I make it easy for him because he loves football, loves coaching and loves being out there with the kids and his fellow coaches.
