That's a good one. A couple other backup catchers that could be coaches are Damian Miller and Doug Mirabelli.
I don't think big name players would be good coaches, and you don't see many. I would think it would be tough to teach players how to play when it came pretty easy to the coach. A few other variables would probably be detrimental to a star player being a good coach or manager. They'd have to deal with mediocre results, and come to terms with losing (Not accepting it, but being able to handle it the right way) both qualities which I don't think many great players have. They are great qualities for a player but not the best traits for a manager and definitely not good for a coach trying to teach players.
