In most every case you're right. However make no mistake, if a GM wants a player played, the coach will play him. He may only give said player the odd shift (unless otherwise stated by the GM). Don't think there have not been and there will not always be internal battles between a coach & gm, or coach & assistants. It happens.
Luckily if you're winning, things like this may not come up.
