sometimes a loss is a good teaching lesson.  Sometimes a loss can help more than winning especially when it doesn't count

it can be, but that don't mean that you can be ok with a loss

 

I think us losing to Apopka and Escambia in 2015 helped us grow in second half of season

 

losing to lee and Madison in span of 4 days helped us grow toughness but I was not ok with the loss itself at the time, though I look back and realized it was a blessing in disguise

that's because you are a FAN atic and not a coach.  A coach usually sees the bigger picture that doesn't mean they are ok with it.  Everyone would love to go undefeated but in reality very few will ever do that.  Better to lose a preseason game and learn a lesson then a regular season game and have to learn the same lesson

I would never be allowed to be a football coach anyway so I probably wont be able to see through that mindset

Why? Coach Weiner at Tampa Plant did not play the game competitively and is one of the more successful coaches in Florida High School Football. So even if you did not play varsity, does not mean you could not coach if that is what you wanted to do.

because our coaching staff only hires former Columbia players and I have too much pride to allow myself to coach football at a different school

The world changes, my friend. If you wanted to coach at Columbia with a burning passion, there is probably a way. It would not be easy, and there would be resistance. However, things do change. If it is worth it to you, then you should do whatever it takes to make it a reality. 

Sometimes the perspective of a non player can be a very useful thing. You are less likely to be  "married" to a particular way of doing things. 

A good football player may not have a good football mind. Likewise, a good football mind does not mean you have had to be a player.

I'm sure I can in some capacity, even if not in football

Coaching staffs change. More importantly you would be better served to coach somewhere else first and come into there with some experience.  You may want to start in peewee and learn the ropes and then you will already have a relationship with the players .
