Default Difference

I do believe there is a substantial difference between being an associate Head coach and an associate coach. The first leaves an impression of equitable power with the head coach and the second does not leave that impression. Top your post with the quotes does not substantiate your first post but shows your first post was wrong or just your normal BS.

Guess the smiley is an attempt at mildly sarcastic irony, meaning the half-dozen quotes obviously DO substantiate my first post correcting the term assistant to associate, which is clearly neither wrong nor BS. We also agree that there's a fairly significant difference between the two titles.

etc.
etc.
etc.

General Rule of : Read first. Then post. Especially if challenging someone's information.

[The intellectually rigorous will note that Bowness could in fact be an assistant coach after all, meaning all these sources are wrong, while TBO is the sole shining beacon of Truth; the above merely constitutes substantiation of my earlier post.]
Yeah but none have the words " associate head coach"

Default Bifocals

I think it all depends on whether you have bifocals on or not "the other side" without your bifocals on the words tend to run together leading to reading errors and misinterpretations of what is actually written in the press releases, or maybe just stubbornness about always being right.

Another unfortunate victim of the state-run education system. But don't give up...maybe with some remedial reading courses and dedication to practice, full professor needn't be a distant dream

They are now both the head coach of the Tampa Bay Lightning. It's different from previous Cooper's position of sole and final authority.

How different? It'll be interesting to see how this dynamic plays out on the ice, that's for sure...especially times of difficulty
Top here is your initial post, in what release is he called associate head coach, except, as I pointed out in EE's tweet, there is no mention of him being an associate head coach. The difference is very important. When you call someone an associate head coach you are making him equal in many respects to the Head coach, which would reduce Coopers power over the team, that is not being done, In all other posts he is called an associate coach which is an important distinction but he is still not on par with the head coach thus there is a clear hierarchy of authority. You really need to get bifocals and take a reading class yourself, you are probably the result of private elitist education system because you simply cannot admit when you are wrong.
