The fear of moving up

So I'm not sure I'm looking for advice here. And I'm not sure I'm looking for guidance. But maybe some stories where you've felt the same? I don't know...
My story;
I've been coaching HS football for give years. My ultimate goal is to be a very successful HC one day, and I've gone into every job looking at it as an accelerated classroom. I'm a good, not yet great coach. I've worked for some godawful HCs, and this past year have worked for the greatest HC I've ever met (and one of the most successful in MO history).
Anyhow, another coach starting his first year as a HC at a very small school called up my present HC, and asked for recommendations to help with his staff. My name was given, and he wants me to coach for him. I've met with him several times, and he told me Friday that he wants me as his DC. I interview on the teaching end on Monday.
I've coordinated at the freshman level for several years, and have coached every defensive position except CBs. I think it's time for me to take the next step, but now that it's nut-cutting time, I'm a bit terrified. It's definitely gonna be trial by fire, and I'm gonna have to learn a ton really quick.
I guess I just wonder what your stories are that are similar.

I think it is cool you admit you are a little afraid. The Wright Brothers crashed the shit out their airplane over and over before they got it right. Just give it your best shop and work through it emotionally. You will never forgive yourself if you don't try to do all you can to give all you can.

Sully regardless of what happens you're a lucky guy. I would kill to be a coach. I interviewed for a few jobs but not having a teaching degree hurts.

I just got word this morning.
I got the job (pending board approval, which is apparently a technicality).
Yes, I'm excited as hell.
Am I ready? I've been prepping for this for seven years. Insure there'll be times when I fall on my face. But ultimately, it's my passion and I'm gonna put in the work to not make the same mistake twice.

Congratulations. What class school is this (assuming you don't want to say the name of the school itself)?

Congrats. If I woke up tomorrow and was a HS freshman all over again that's one of the things I'd love to do.

Knowledge can be gained. There are coaching camps and contacts you can make to increase that knowledge base.

Your success will always depend on your relationships with the kids. If they believe in you and respect you they'll make you look like a genius...
