    Thank you to Shaun Mason for this info.


    So, in Madden 13 you can be either player or coach. We will all be coaches in the league. I'm kind of a realism stickler, I think that's pretty obvious.

    This year, I would like everyone to:
    • Use their REAL NAME as their coach name. I don't want to see "RadarRider" I want to see "Ken Mooney".
    • If you have the ability, I would like you to use GameFace (I think you can do that this year). The FIFA guys can attest to how creepily realistic the faces can be and I think it will add another level of immersion to the game.
    Also, I'm stealing from Hard Knocks a bit in this post.

    In Madden 13, you have 3 choices for your coach's backstory. You can be one of the following -

    1. Motivator

    "Players simply want to play for you. You will find is easier to lure players to your team and keep them. Free agents will consider your team a prime destination, but you'll also need to improve the players you have and fill your roster through the draft to be great. Inspire your men to greatness and you could be the next John Madden or Vince Lombardi.

    2. Strategist

    "As a coach you are always evolving. Thinking of new ways to progress your players and own abilities. However, being the smartest guy doesn't always lead to wins if you don't have the right players or the ability to motivate them. Will you go down as the next great innovator like Bill Walsh or Tom Landry or just another mad genius"

    3. Team Builder

    "You are shrewd in your dealings. Part scout, part GM, you excel at finding the right pieces. You should have the personnel to win but you'll need to inspire and progress them to be great. Do that and you'll go down as the next Joe Gibbs as the next great team builder."

    So, what is your coach going to be named, and what kind of coach will you be?

    RadarRider if you can just pin this for me (y)

    As of September 2, 2012 here is the information

    I am REALLY glad you decided to let us create coaches Ken.

    My coach will be John Mastandrea a Strategist.

    He is going to focus heavily on his players and their development. He is intelligent and innovative with his gameplans and expects his players to play physical and smart.

    The run game will be a focus point on both offense and defense. With a runningback who can run and catch and a defense known to stuff the run.

    If I get the team I want, it goes without saying that a team builder is sorely needed.

    Nice dude. Ive never done a game face nor do I have Kinect, but I do have the old ass digital camera for the 360. Do I have to wait to get Madden to set it up?

    Just take a picture of yourself from the front and side. The website wil lead you through it, then you'll be ready as soon as you have the game.
    After a fair amount of tweaking I got mine to look pretty much exactly like me.

    take your time here, I suggest you read the CCM manual material. There is a link a the top of the topic, it explains what is available in CCM.
