One of the toughest things you will encounter is handling an obnoxious coach. Too many times I've seen young officials eaten alive by a coach just because of the age difference and their fear of tossing an obnoxious adult. Don't ever let a coach manhandle you, or even worse, a young partner. Know when to warn the coach, when to give him 2 and when to toss him. I watched a game with two new officials that got eaten alive by a coach and they did nothing to stop him. At least one of them quit after the game, maybe both. Bad scheduling to put the two together, but an example of what a coach can do to a young and inexperienced ref.
