Bench Coach

A bench coach is typically considered the right-hand man to his team's manager. Bench coaches assist their managers in decision-making and will sometimes relay scouting information from the team's front office to the club's players.

Many bench coaches go on to become managers, or are former managers. The bench coach typically steps in to act as manager when the regular manager is unavailable (often as a result of being ejected from the game).
