* ''Literature/TheToiletPaperTigers'' by Creator/GordonKorman, which follows a summer baseball team for middle-school-aged kids. Though in this case, the actual coach is completely clueless about the game; it's his granddaughter who actually whips the team into shape. And she has to blackmail the team to do it.

* Parodied in ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic Fumoffu''[='s=] legendary rugby episode. Kaname is asked by the student council president to save the Jindai High rugby team, which is on a major losing streak because they're a bunch of tea-sipping wimps who are too timid to even shoo an insect out of the clubhouse. Sosuke plays the role of the life-saving coach, except that he puts the team through TrainingFromHell that turns them into a bunch of blood-thirsty psychopaths. While they do indeed defeat the OpposingSportsTeam, they do so in such a violent fashion that it turns them into ShellShockedVeterans who never regain their former glory.

* * ''Manga/GiantKilling'': Professional football/soccer team East Tokyo United is on the brink of folding, due to their incredibly poor performance, when their former star player returns from the United Kingdom to become their new manager, having already directed an amateur village team all the way to UsefulNotes/TheFACup fourth round. The catch? Many ETU fans and players alike have still not forgiven him for leaving his old team to go abroad in the first place, blaming their current troubles on his departure.
