It may be as much the "child of a celebrity" syndrome as much as absent Dad works long hours syndrome. This probably also happens with affluent teens/young men who are children of investment bankers and partners in law firms, but it makes the papers when it is the son of a TV/movie star, politician, or other person in a high profile occupation.

IMHO, the coaches in the NFL overwork - my coaching experience has been limited to the high school level, so I'm not pretending to be an expert, but I've seen some of the schedules these guys have - ridiculous hours - you could work 24 hours a day at any job if you wanted to ....Spurrier got blasted during his weekly press conference once because the media noticed he was only working about 10 hrs a day - if the number of hours you put in correlates with success, then Gruden should win the SB every year - he's notorious for living at the office ...

Here's the thing...

Many Many pastors kids are absolute terrors. Why? Because like doctors, pastors are on call 24/7 The result is that many children and many wives end up being neglected by thier husbands/fathers. I would imagine the same is true with the children of coaches.

And yes... I will pat Cowher on the back.. better late then never. Even if he needs to just shore up his marriage... or give back for a couple of years. Good for him.
