^^^^^^^^^I did not say NFL coaching. I meant couching at any level
I did read the paper. I guess you missed the part about the 78% -that's the part I did not believe. From the paper I mentioned above:
BTW, I included a link to the paper I was referring to in my previous post:I will try to recover the papers you "posted", and get back to you later.
The result of our comprehensive research on bankruptcy risk among NFL players is quite different from a widely-cited Sports Illustrated article, which reported that 78 percent of former NFL players are bankrupt or under “financial stress” within two years of retirement (Torre, 2009). After 2 years of retirement, only about 1.9 percent of players in our sample have filed for bankruptcy.
Update: I just downloaded the papers by Danowsky and Sonnega and neither one provides original data on bankruptcy. The Danowsky paper mentions the Torres report on SI but does not provide any further information supporting those numbers. The paper I quoted is from 2015 and addresses the Torres report directly -the number are not even remotely close to 78. The Torres report is from 2009 and the Danowsky paper from 2012. The paper by Weir et al 2009 (Sonnega is actually the senior author) does not addresses bankruptcy at all. It mentions financial well-being but nothing else.
