The Young Coach

Now, this doesn’t exactly mean age for the 56 year old Brett Brown. However, both Brown and Doug Pederson have been under the reigns for less than five years. Each also experienced hardship before their current success.

Gabe Kapler fits the young role as he enters Philadelphia as a first-time manager. He, similar to the others, appears to be somewhat of a players coach, which could be a very good thing for a young roster. There is not a large sample size to see how much this will improve the team, but the rookie coach certainly fits the formula.
