No. Assistant coaches may be recommended by managers after the draft, but must be formally nominated by the league president and approved by the local league’s board of directors. Typically, assistant coaches have an association to players on the team or the division in which they volunteer. The number of teams must be finalized before the number of managers and coaches needed can be determined. It is the decision of the league president to appoint and the board of directors to approve managers and coaches at all levels of play in accordance with Little League operating policies.
