Congrats to Boubacar! Why so much negativity? From the tone of it it's not just general concern. Yes, this may be his first year, but when your child first started playing sports did the coach say,"oh no, why can't we get someone with more experience?" When your child made the team the coach did not look at him or her and say "um, so you've only assisted? Yeah I don't have that much faith in you." The coach treated the players as players, PERIOD. You could try the same technique with him as a coach. Support him. He was assistant last year so I'm sure that counts for something. He is not cluless.
As for the teaching... lol, all teachers begin as new teachers. #shocker. Just be glad you have someone
who actually speaks the language they are teaching.. Also, schools have this program you may not be familiar with. New teachers must have mentors,so they aren't left dangling in the wind. High-school level,foreign language class,coach, skills, personality and accent to reel them in and he's got it made. The tough job, for any educator/coach, are the parents,booster club, and those who are living out their dreams vicariously through the child.
GOOD LUCK COACH AW! You are in my prayers.
