An offensive coordinator is a member of the coaching staff of a gridiron football team who is in charge of the offense. Generally, along with his defensive counterpart, he represents the second level of command structure after the head coach. The offensive coordinator is generally in charge of managing all offensive players and assistant coaches, of designing specific offensive plays, of developing a general offensive game plan, and of calling the plays for the offense during the game. An offensive coordinator typically has a number of assistant coaches working under him; usually coaches primarily responsible for the various offensive positions on the team (such offensive line, quarterbacks, slotbacks, tight ends, or wide receivers).
