Exit Interviews

During Kawicka's interview where he said some players didn't take thing seriously, he was asked and said that Herm was not conducting exit interviews with the players.

I don't know the percentage of teams that do, or don't hold such meetings. I'm just wondering what people think about exit interviews and the 2006 Chiefs.

Do people think Herm should have had such meetings with the players? Could he have learned some things from them? Or, did Herm do the right thing; he knows enough from 17 games and it is going to be his way or the highway in any event.

It appears that Herm doesn't have a clue so whatever he does is wrong.

He also said DV didn't do exit interviews. In fact, he said he was never in DV's office except to tell him of an injury. I'm not sure how common the practice is, but it would be good to let the players voice their opinions.

You are correct. I try not to bring the old coaching regime into discussions, however DV did not do exit interviews either. In hindsight, perhaps speaking with defensive personnel would have been a wise move for Vermeil; then again Dick probably would have broken into hysterics after the 2nd "Why is Greg Robinson our coach??"

Apparently he never heard of the issue regarding the predictability of the offense.

I got the impression that Herm talks to the players, but maybe not in such a formal way. Who knows. I don't know how much difference it would make, based on his demeanor. Seems like it's Herm's way or no way. Maybe that's the right way to do it, I mean you can't just let the inmates run the assylum. But I would think that their feedback would be valuable. Especially the high profile players.

An exit interview could be an enlightning experience when done with someone cerebral and level headed. Once the "exit" is already established all reservations caused by employer-employee relationship are virtually out the door and people tend to speek freely.

In an ideal atmosphere people would speak their mind and offer constructive critisism before this point but the real world doesn't always work that way.

Ive given exit interviews and I have had an exit interview. In total the experience was about that of having leftover tuna casserole.

Happy folk say all is good, stay the course.
Mad folk say you suck, management above you sucks and Im going to double my pay with the competition. Nothing comes from an emotion charged interview other than emotion.
Retiring folk say when do i get my final bonus check.

If getting feedback waits till the exit interview your business is doomed.

I don't know that its reasonable to expect a coach to have a sitdown with every player on the squad and practice squad, as well as coaches, staff, and do evaluations.

What I think it probably more beneficial and reasonable, would be for him to pull a Sample set of the team, Aging Vet likely leaving, supah-stah, offensive, defense, special team player and rookie.....to see how they felt about the year, what would have helped them more, and their thoughts.

It doesn't mean the coach has to implement those ideas, but it might be a good way at evaluate ones self as a coach, and look for a way to improve what you're doing.

I ask for input all the time after an event, presentation, conference in which I'm planning or speaking. If I don't ask, noone is going to tell me if I said "uh" too many times, so I can correct it and make the next one better.

I think Herm should bring in a hypnotist.....preseason, each week, and at the end of the season. Build confidence, maintain focus and confidence, and at the end of the season to purge the barf of the offensive game plan and performance.

Maybe they could watch old movies have candy and ice cream and just have good old fashioned fun.

Agree 100% it's the wrong time to be looking for information on what's wrong but players also leave because they want to move closer to home, play for a different team or make more money who aren't retiring, mad or happy. Just moving on.

If I thought putting bunny tails on every team members uniform would help at this point I'd be all for that too.

Being embaressed for the last 13 years is getting really old.

Here's Herm's Exit interview:

HERM: Hi, How ya doin? Have a seat.

PLAYER: Good. Thanks.

HERM: Well, if you've seen any of my press conferences, I've noted that this is a time of evaluation, and some players fit into the scheme...

PLAYER: Right.

HERM: ...and you don't. Buh-bye.

PLAYER: But what about the predictable play calling?

HERM: Talk to the hand....

PLAYER: Or the "Play not to lose" conservatism?

HERM" (with fingers in ear) Na Na Na Na Na Na....

PLAYER: But...

HERM: Don't let the doorknob hit you where the good Lord split you...

PLAYER:

HERM: Last time I checked, I'm the head coach.
