Well, this year for spring break coach is still thick into recruiting. There are plenty of different ways a coach can utilize spring break, one thing to remember is that a coach who has kids might have a different week off then his kids. That has always been the case for us :)
In past years coach has spent his spring break:
Catching up on masters degree work
Writing Spring ball practice plans
taking team members on missions trips
visiting other campuses to meet with coaches and learn from them
I think that one thing people assume about the college life is that professors and coaches get a lot of down time and extra vacations. Speaking for a football coach's family, that's not the case.
