Etiquette question, addressing a coach?

Recommended Posts

Ds needs to write a thank you note to a college football coach. How should he address it? They attended a game together, and the coach had ds calling him by his first name. (He is not ds's coach.)


Dear Bob?

Dear Mr. Smith?

Dear Coach Smith?

Not a college coach but a former high school coach - I preferred "Coach Smith" over "Miss Smith/Mrs. Smith" in that setting. Even though I was teacher and not coach to those students in my academic classes, they all still called me "Coach". I would go with "Coach".
