Coach, despite being a word of English origin, has its ancestry in the word KÓCSI, as the products and inhabitants of the town of KÓCS, in Hungary, were called. The Kócsi were also famous in Europe, in the fifteenth century, for being excellent coach makers. At that time, the word was also used as a synonym for tutor. In 1813, the word was adopted by Oxford University students to designate their professors who helped them through summer school. In this period, Oxford adopted this word to differentiate physical education teachers from others. In the 1960s, in the US, companies received a strong contribution from the capital market. New shareholders demand increasing profits. Companies decide to lay off their older, more expensive staff, and this creates a crisis in developing leaders in companies. The figure of the coach then emerges as an expert in developing leaders. Nowadays, we relate the word, most popularly, for coaches in Sports.
