Coaches Perceptions About Passion
by Sexton, Isaiah D., M.Ed., Minot State University, 2020, 48; 27997159
Abstract (Summary)

The CPR framework developed by Anderson, Conn, Gamas, Borkhuis, and Lantto (2018) emphasized capacity, passion, and relevance as three primary components that lead to success. The purpose of this study was to explore the desired role of passion in college football by college football coaches. This study also seeks to understand the role and difference between harmonious and obsessive passion and coaches’ preferences. This study is conducted through the use of surveys to division 2 and division 3 football coaches. The results indicate that a majority of surveyed coaches strongly believe in harmonious passion. However, the coaches are conflicted in their beliefs of obsessive passion. This lack of clarity when it comes to obsessive passion may be the result of conflating “obsessed” with “passionate” while neglecting the disadvantages of obsessive behavior.
