dc.description.abstract This paper looks at the effect of college coaches on player development and in the process explores the development of a model using imperfect measures of quality. I constructed a model that created a continuous measure of player quality based on the ordinal measure of player quality that is available in high school recruit ranks and professional draft ranks. The model also includes a significant correction for attenuation bias. The regression results showed a small effect of college coaches on player development.Overall, this paper addresses the larger questions about how to evaluate value added when performance is mis-measured.
