The 'Be The Coach' App Lets Football Fans Call Plays

A brand new app called 'Be The Coach' is designed to make it possible for football fans to go about enjoying an interactive coaching experience.

There's a reason why the term 'Monday morning quarterback' exists, as it refers to sports fans using the benefit of hindsight to discuss how they would make a better coach than the coach of a particular team. Now, the Be The Coach app forces football fans to put their money where their mouth is by calling plays as if they were head coaches or offensive coordinators of NFL teams. Users' call decisions are then scored based on how effective they might have been.

This interactive coaching experience is a wonderful example of technology used to boost engagement with obsessed sports fans.
