At the start there must of been somewhere down the line because it can't just start off first ever teams with a coach who has played professionally if the sport has just begun, but I'm not old enough to name them D:
in world soccer,Jose Morinho of Portugal did not play soccer in his youth.Yet,he started as an assistant to world class coaches in the world's biggest clubs. Now,he is one of the best coaches in the world,if not the best .Winning numerous domestic and European championships with different clubs in different countries.He's currently the coach of Real Madrid of Spain
Rick Majera, Gene Keady, Bruce Weber, Mark Few, Tom Crean and Bruce Pearl.
if you are talking about the European football

Coaches like Jim O'Brien - Pacers Gregg Popovich - Spurs Stan Van Gundy - Magic never played in the NBA and just studied basketball for the life of coaching.
No Preston Pearson went to the University of Illinois and excelled at basketball. He never played college football.

45,000 Including Joe Reitz from the Colts who played basketball at Northwestern in college.

Unless you're just a man at basketball and you've never played, you're probably not gonna make it.. Haha, but you don't have to play before, you just have to be good enough.
No. Kevin Nash was never an NBA player. He did play college basketball for the University of Tennessee and later played professional basketball in Europe but a torn ACL cut his career short.
Michael Jordan never played another sport after basketball professionally. But he did do videos on how to play basketball, he mainly taught his son Marcus after retiring. MJ is the god basketball
Yes, there are several head coaches at the DI-FBS level that never played (and there are some coaches at the NFL level). You can certainly coach at the high school level.
