I use a DoF but really it’s just and added staff member to make the game a little more realistic. You can use any number of staff from Chairman to Assistant Managers to cover the responsibilities of a DoF. If the club doesn’t have a DoF in place, I will hire one for ‘other staff’ contract negotiations and Hire/Fire non-coaching staff.. sports scientists and analysts etc.Hi guys. Do You use a director of football? I'm currently in second season with Nottingham Forest in Premier League. What are the responsabilities of a director of football and for what to use him?
