There are parts of coaching that stay remarkably the same over time. A coach can still consult the written books of famed UCLA basketball coach John Wooden and largely apply the same lessons today. This is because the keys to success are still readily known and consistent, whether it is a hurdler attempting to time their jumps or a softball player trying to exert plate discipline. Yes, sabermetrics can change what you value, but being bigger, faster, and stronger still is a winning formula, and coaches utilize strategies to emphasize strengths and deemphasize presumed weaknesses.
