He just has to add his two cents worth for the game time situation and ask the OC to call a play to get him a first down, or run down the time, etc.
Focusing on the game situation instead of the actual play called may allow him to understand the more subtle vagaries of the game.
Such as quick snapping the ball to get the other team caught offside.
Throwing the challenge flag instead of guessing which play to call next.
Watching for game changing tendencies and asking your coordinators to adjust.
Compartmentalization in football is a good thing given how complex the situation is.
It is very similar to the military.
