The topic of burnout in sports has been the focus of research attention for several decades, although research has largely centered on the antecedents and consequences associated with athlete burnout. Currently, a limited number of studies have examined coach burnout and the implications it can have on the coaching process, social interactions, and general wellbeing. The professionalization of coaching has promoted the development of effective coaching yet it has also increased job demands and the potential for work-family conflict. In this chapter we provide a brief introduction to the burnout construct as well as a short review of the coach burnout research to date. Further, suggestions are outlined for how the authors foresee that research in the area will evolve in the future. Specifically, the use of theoretical frameworks that advance knowledge of burnout and promote diverse lines of inquiry are forwarded. Additionally, the use of more idiocratic quantitative designs with more frequent measurement across multiple time points are proposed in an effort to advance knowledge of coach burnout. Finally, we offer applied suggestions for burnout prevention and optimization of the wellbeing of coaches.
