The skills of a good position coach are not the same as a head coach


You might have heard of the Peter Principle, which is a concept in management developed by Laurence J. Peter, which observes that people in a hierarchy tend to rise to their "maximum level of incompetence": employees are promoted based on their success in previous jobs until they reach a level at which they are no longer competent, as skills in one job do not necessarily translate to another.

As a position coach, you have to be good at teaching skills to players. Being a good position coach doesn't mean you'd be a good DC or OC. And being a good OC or DC doesn't mean you'd be a good HC. But that is typically how people are promoted, assuming that because they are good at one level, they will be good at the next level.
