Off-Season Tools: Hiring a Digital Director of Football Operations (DFO)
Being around and talking with hundreds of coaches every year, it’s easy to get a sense what we want and need. The common denominator in my experience: coaches want more time.
Consider for a moment what you could do to improve your program or impact your athletes if you had more time to plan, strategize, watch film, or just to invest into the culture of your team. Time is the most important resource you have, and yet the one thing you probably don’t have nearly enough of.
This begs the question; how can you make more time? The simple answer is to delegate. More specifically, what can you delegate and to whom?
What if there was a way for every high school football program to hire a Director of Football Operations (DFO)? Now there is… and keep in mind, until recently only colleges or high school with big-time budgets could afford DFOs. That’s not the case anymore…
The primary duties of a DFO are to manage the logistics of a football program’s operations–things like scheduling, communication, summer-camp sign-ups, texting, emailing, preparing and distributing drills and workouts, gathering materials for coaching meetings, tracking individual players’ workouts and progress, manage off-season leaderboards… and the list goes on.
But now, every high school football program can afford a Director of Football Operations.
MaxOne is a platform that allows you to organize, communicate, and train your players and program all with ONE login. Instead of having to hire a full-time DFO — let MaxOne solve this problem for you, and for much less money. No catches or gimmicks; just a proven way to free up more of your precious time–while not having to sacrifice quality management of your program.

The Best Way to Deliver and Track Core Lifts/Maxes.
Every good coaching staff has an off-season workout program in place; the challenge is motivating the athletes to actually participate in the workouts. MaxOne makes it possible for coaches to compile a video library of drills and exercises that instruct athletes in the precise way the activities should be executed. Coaches can pull from this library to build fully customizable strength and skill workouts, where they can then assign to specific athletes and groups within the team. Results are posted in real time on a team and global leaderboard – creating a sense of competition.
Communication & Scheduling
Message your entire program with the click of a button.
Great coaches are professional communicators and this shouldn’t be lost in the off-season. MaxOne has built-in calendars to keep your program organized and help communicate with your program’s coaches, athletes, and even parents through its messaging app. You can create separate, color-coded schedules for different groups within the program, where they only appear on the calendars of those they impact. For those coaches who use spreadsheets to log team contact information, the MaxOne app stores and organizes it all for you in a much more efficient way. Learn More…

Coaching can be enhanced with the most relevant and up-to-date training regimens, whether it be in-game or during practice. The MaxOne marketplace puts the latest and greatest training methods, workouts, playbooks, and coaching resources from some of the best coaches and trainers in professional and intercollegiate athletics, at your fingertips. Coaches can easily download and distribute expert level video and training content directly to their athletes’ phones. Learn More…
An online coaching binder accessible from anywhere.
Sharing information and collaborating across a coaching staff is critical for building consistency and momentum within a football program. It can also be challenging, and many coaches express an interest in finding a better way to do it. I really appreciated the “Coaches’ Corner” tool from MaxOne that allows for uploading video, PDF or image files directly to an account, and to share those items across all coaches within my program. The tool helps coaches to communicate effectively and efficiently across the entire staff. Learn More…
