Recommended Posts



October 17, 2005 ? Electronic Arts announced today that NFL Head Coach (working title) will be available in stores in spring 2006, under the EA SPORTS? brand. NFL Head Coach is in development in Orlando, Fla. by EA Tiburon, makers of other NFL properties including Madden NFL Football and NFL STREET. The new exclusive deal with the NFL has allowed EA to build this franchise and work with all coaches in the NFL Coaches Club. Watch the preview video >> Click image to enlarge


"NFL Head Coach, the third pillar in our NFL portfolio, was developed to satiate all those Monday morning quarterbacks and fantasy football fanatics,? said Dale Jackson, Executive Producer, EA Tiburon. ?NFL Head Coach is an entirely new football experience that every level of football gamer can play. It provides the strategy that the hardcore fan will demand, but with very easy-to-use controls and assistance for more casual fans. Football will no longer be intimidating for the casual user.?


NFL Head Coach reinvents football gaming by introducing the first 3D strategy sports game that challenges gamers to build and manage every aspect of a football team from the ground up. A simple conversation system and an engaging 3D graphical interface allow users to immerse themselves into the lives of an NFL Head Coach. As head coach, you develop a team strategy, execute it on and off the field, and try to build a winning organization year after year. Your status as a coaching legend will rise and fall based on all of your actions as you strive to become the greatest head coach of all time. Behind the desk, on the practice field, or while wearing the headset on game days, take the reins of your favorite NFL team and lead it to victory.

Yeah, I knew about this and was intrigued. Seems like a good idea, in theory. Hopefully it's deep enough that it shouldn't have just been included in the Madden season mode (which, as far as ownership goes and really DOING something with your team, doesn't offer that much).


They should also do scenario's from past teams if possible. I want to do the full-on Marvin Lewis scenario from 13 years of being doodoo, to them hiring me so I can do something with the franchise...

This reminds me of a college game for the PC a while back (can't remember the name) where you just recruited and did all the inner workings of a head coach, you didn't even play the games.
