  3. Can you make a substitution instead of calling a timeout send a message to one player or the rest of the team?
  4. How do you implement your systems and philosophies in practice?
  5. How can you foster communication between the players on your team?
  6. Is it better for you to tell a player something or have another player give that player the message?
  7. Do you talk with your staff and the players who are not in the game?
  8. What are you trying to tell your team?
  9. Is it timely?
  10. Is it digestable in the time that they have?
