Coaches can hold a certain mystique in today’s world. Many of them are nearly as famous as their players because of their personalities, achievements, and overall bodies of work. However, not every coach is a calm and stable human. Quite a few coaches are amongst the wackiest characters who are embarrassed in the public eye today.
This list isn’t about the worst coaches in the world. Some of these coaches and managers to follow are incredibly successful. However, they are also extremely eccentric. Then there are those who made incredibly poor or strange choices without thinking about the consequences. Check out our list below via Bleacher Report.
25. Ozzie Guillen
Guillen is an obvious candidate for this list because of his personality. He’s definitely one of the wackiest coaches in the world. This is because the Venezualan is so outspoken. One of his most controversial moments came when he showed support for Fidel Castro. Obviously, the U.S doesn’t love socialism. In short, this was like using salt in a recipe where sugar was required.
He also used a homophobic slur in relation to a Chicago journalist. This didn’t win him many new fans either. However, there is no doubt that he was an effective coach. He coached the White Sox to a rare World Series title. Because of that, many fans were immediately prepared to overlook his flaws. But this wild individual doesn’t care what people think.
