Best Football Coaching Books for Coaches – Belichick Collection #5

do your job - bill belichickThis is the Best Football Coaching Books for Coaches fifth post in the Belichick Collection top coaching football books list.  The Belichick Collection is a list of some of the rarest and greatest football books ever printed.  Coach Belichick donated his collection of football coaching books to the U.S. Naval Academy.  His dad was a long time assistant coach at the Academy.  I saw a Sports Illustrated article about the collection last year and the Naval Academy was kind enough to send me the list of books.

I love reading older football books. They have some great information that has been forgotten in this pass happy day and age.  This is especially useful in youth football. These are some of the best youth football coaching books you can find since they are run heavy offenses and defenses. They also have some great info which is very relevant in today’s game too.  It is also very interesting to read comments or papers left in the older books. After getting this list I have purchased about 30 more books from the list as I research them.  Many of these books are rare gems of football coaching.

Here is the 5th post in the Belichick Library Collection. Go here for the first post , second post , third post and fourth post.

Here is the next 50 or so best football coaching books for coaches from the Belichick Collection.  Enjoy.

Football Books – Belichick Collection 1

do your job - bill belichickA year or two ago, I read an article in SI  about the Belichick Collection of great football books in the U.S. Naval Academy’s football building’s lounge.  Football books from the 1891 to present.  Belichick’s dad was a coach at the Naval Academy and Bill Belichick was raised on Navy football. He used to play catch with Roger Stauback as a boy.  This is why the Naval Academy is the lucky librarians of the Belichick library of football books.

Since I love reading old football coaching books, I called the Naval Academy and ask for the complete list of books.  They were kind enough to send the list.  I thought I would share the list with you too.  Here are the first 50 football books from the collection.  If I found the book in a Google search I linked the book title to the seller.
