NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The men who lead the charge on any given Sunday are not the players who suit up, but rather the coaches who spend the whole week coming up with a game plan for each game.

Not much is known about what goes on inside the minds of NFL coaches, but one author set out to change that.

New York Daily News columnist Dave Myers has a new book called “Coaching Confidential: Inside The Fraternity Of NFL Coaches.”

He sat down with CBS 2’s Don Dahler to discuss some insights he learned while writing the book.

“In doing the research for this book, I saw there were so many different ways of approaching this job and there’s really no one set formula that you can say, ‘ok, this is going to get you a Super Bowl victory,'” Myers told Dahler.

Myers said one thing that has proven successful in coaching is the ability to adapt to the younger crop of players.

“The players had changed over the years. The same strict rules weren’t working anymore,” Myers said.

Myers said Giants coach Tom Coughlin was able to change with the times and has won two Super Bowl rings in recent years as a result.
