Notes
  • The effectiveness of coach turnover on team performance is widely discussed in the literature due to the indirect impact of a team’s performance on a club’s revenues. This study examines the effect of coach turnover within a competition season by focusing on the change in team quality and the change in home team advantage under the new coach. The change in team quality or home team advantage can vary according to the team (team specific) or might be an independent quantity (non-team specific). We estimated nine possible regression models, given no change, team specific change and non-team specific change in quality or home team advantage. The data are match results of Belgian male soccer teams playing in the highest national division during seven seasons. Results point to a team specific effect of a new coach on a team’s quality. This paper further contributes by evaluating the new coach’s success with regard to whether his ability to improve team quality also results in a better position of the team in the final ranking. A new coach will be able to improve the ranking of the team if the improved team quality under the new coach renders a positive team quality.
