Anyway, I find it somewhat amusing this question was even asked. Although there were a couple of eras in football's hx wherein the rules makers tried to prevent communication from non-players to players (no coaching from the sideline), it was learned that even if such is a desideratum, it is not practicably enforcible. Today the only related concern is whether the game is being delayed. Chances are that if the captain confers with a coach, the game will be less delayed than otherwise!
"Desideratum?" Alright, where's my dictionary?
