    What does credit means here?

    The couch was credited with putting the team back on the rails.
    Does Credit means "to arrange" or "be responsible" for turning the team back to the proper situation or perhaps non?!

    Re: What does credit means here?

    People thought he was responsible for it, and since it was a good thing (getting the team "back on track") he was given credit for it.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: What does credit means here?

    I rather like the idea of a couch training a sports team. It's reminiscent of the phrase "armchair sportsperson" - someone who loves sport but only if they are watching it on TV from the comfort of their chair/couch. There's no danger of them actually getting any exercise themselves.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
