Though the job of coaching a team might seem less risky considering the injuries that players often have to deal with, motivating the players and bringing home the trophy is nowhere near an easy task. Intense Competition from another team and few bad years of the game can end a career of a coach. Hence, it is riskier in that regard, and performance pressure is equally upon the coach as it is upon the players. Andy Reid is one such coach who has faced several ups and downs before finally winning the Super Bowl Championship 2020 after 21 years.
