@paok1970,
I would say no, "head" is an adjective, like "assistant", "offensive" or "defensive" would be in front of coach. A term like "player-coach" that describes a person who both plays and coaches the same team would be a clear cut compound noun.

@engineer,
Should I say, "A compound noun is a noun that is made with two or more words" or "A compound noun is a noun that is made up of two or more words"?

Thank you.
