Abstract [en]

The position of the coach in elite sports has changed radically over the last 50 years. Using the Swedish male elite soccer coach as an example, the aim of this thesis is to acquire a deeper understanding of this change. The purpose is to examine the changing position of the Swedish male elite soccer coach in relation to the changing conditions of elite soccer between the 1960s and the 2010s. The history of the Swedish soccer coach is analysed through the lens of the Foucauldian perspective of governmentality. Focusing on the constitution of subject positions, the thesis identifies the power/knowledge relationships formulated within the governmentalities of Swedish elite football clubs and the Swedish Football Association (SvFF). A text analysis of board minutes and annual reports from the Swedish elite soccer club IFK Norrköping, education material from coaching courses organised by SvFF and the transcripts of semi-structured qualitative interviews with former and still active Swedish elite soccer coaches has been conducted.

The analysis shows that at the beginning of the 1960s the established power/knowledge relationship implied that, kitted out in a whole and clean tracksuit, the coach was expected to govern the players’ techniques and fitness training twice a week. However, in order to be internationally competitive, in 1967 SvFF overturned the amateur regulations and instead allowed Swedish clubs to sign professional contracts with the players. From then on the coach was given more time to “conduct the conduct” of the players. In parallel, the clubs and SvFF turned to scientific knowledge and expertise in the areas of physiology and tactics and later sport psychology, leadership and communication. As a consequence, new power/knowledge relationships were formulated which meant that the coach was not only expected to govern new and more dimensions of the players, but also a growing staff of assistant coaches. In addition, dressed in tailor-made trench coat, the coach became the club’s outward face for attracting sponsors and communicating with the media and fans.

Abstract [en]

The coach is a central figure within elite football and coaching a multifaceted, demanding and pedagogical process (Cassidy, Jones, & Potrac, 2009; Jones, 2006; Potrac, Gilbert, & Denison, 2013). The objective of this paper to show how national football associations have developed their coach education programs to produce coaches that could manage the elite coach position. Both contemporary and historical research stresses that there is and have been a fast track pathway for players into elite coach positions, and that a career as a player on a high level has recognized as important (Blackett, Evans, & Piggott, 2015; Peterson, 1993; Stodter & Cushion, 2014). Therefore the specific focus is on how the programs are developed to handle the transition from playing the game to coach the game. Through a comparison of the Football association of Ireland (FAI), The Scottish Football Association (SFA), The Royal Belgium Football Association (Kbvb) and The Swedish Football Association’s (SvFF) coaching education programs, the purpose of this study is to illuminate different ways to make elite football coaches out of players. The research question is: what content in the programs are directed to support the transition from playing to coach elite football?

The theoretical framework is a governmentality perspective (Foucault & Faubion, 2002; Rose, 1999; Walters, 2012). In short this perspective focus on the motives, tactics and consequences of and for governing. Governing is here understood as conduct of conduct (Foucault & Faubion, 2002). With references to Rose (1999) the governmentality perspective also implies the questions what authorities of various sorts want to happen, in relation to problems defined how, in pursuit of what objectives, through what strategies and technique. The “authorities” in this study are the national football associations. What they want is to conduct the conduct of the adepts to make them elite football coaches. What strategies and tactics they use are what we aim to cast light upon.

The method used is a text analysis of the educational material from coaching education programs in Ireland, Sweden, Scotland and Belgium. The analysis is in two steps. First we identify different areas of knowledge. Second we analyze if and how the different areas of knowledge support the transition from player to coach. We also carry out qualitative interviews (Kvale & Brinkmann, 2014) with the directors of the programs.  

The analysis of the educational material in Sweden shows that over time there is less emphasis on the adept’s technical and physical skills, and more on the pedagogical and analytic dimensions. However, there is no particular segment of the programs that explicit deals with the transition from player to coach. The rest of the study will be carried out this spring.
