Not Coach Joe
« on: August 19, 2016, 02:25:57 PM »
It's rather funny, but a coach said me to me the other day, "What do we need to do if we aren't you & coaching this offense?". It made me stop & think for a minute, & I tried to put myself in his shoes. There are several teams from around the country that are using all or parts of my offense, & I speak to many coaches on a daily basis. Last season there was a few teams that ran my system & I learned a few valuable lessons.

First, spend the time working on the basics. Start with good stances for all positions, if your O Line can't get in a good stance learn how to teach it. The backs must learn how to take a handoff then the steps. Perfect it, turnovers kill any offense. Everyone must know how to block, spend as time teaching how as you can.

Next, insist that every play is crisp. Never allow any player to be sloppy. Good isn't good enough, demand they be great. Instead of running sprints run the offense on air to end practice (signal drills). It is important to set a high bar of execution.

Lastly, make sure you understand exactly how everything works & fits together. If you have a question then call me.

Sometimes, we forget that the advice we give is often to coaches who's experience we don't know.
