The transitional coordinator is a professional coaching position relatively new to the NFL, but applied in European clubs for nearly half a century.

Originally, the coach was merely a public relations buffer between the public and the athletes, but recently their job has been expanded to include directing the players between the bench and huddle, as well as the mini-display shown during the beginning of the game where the players look up from the ground to the screen, and then smile.

John Madden has gone as far as saying that the transitional coordinator is "one of the most important coaching positions in the NFL today, perhaps even eclipsing the Head Coach and Defensive Coordinators in many situations."
