Understanding that a certain belief in yourself is vital to being a head coach, one of the problems with Hawkins was that his ego crossed over into delusional megalomania. (see the "look in the mirror" quote from the booster in todays story in the Post). Guys like Saben or Belichick or Knight certainly love themselves too, but they have the results to back them up. Others like the recent and unlamented Broncos ex coach have gone down at least in part due to ego. So do you need to be a megalomaniac to be a successful coach? And if you do, is the ability to cover that up important?
