Did anyone run this defense this past season? If so how did it go?

For some reason, almost no one runs Coach Cox's stuff since he left.

Hello Coach,

I have installed the 521 system this year. So far, I have had 3 shut-outs. I just beat the defending champions. My team is 4-0 and we are closing the regular season this week. This defense is a spread killer. This defense is great against the run as well. This has been a blessing to have discovered this website and to talk among coaches across the world. I have only use the base front and have worked daily on run fit. So far everyone who have spoken to me about the defense always tell me what they think I'm running. ;D

So I returned to coaching this year and ran this Defense. When I was coaching solo, I had 0 issues. the team posted several shutouts in the early goings. Once a was forced to take on an assistant coach, things changed. He did not understand what was going on and caused a great deal of confusion. we ended up suffering the second part of the season as a result

make sure you coach your coaches when you run this defense. coach them more than the kids.

Second championship since I have installed the 521 defense. 15-0 the last  seasons. Great defense. Spread killer and good for undersized smart kids. It is easy to make adjustments and the kids can run it within two weeks by themselves. They also make adjustments quickly on the field. This defense cause a lot of turnovers. I've been bless with a great nose guard and middle linebacker. I can make a kid who never played football before become a stud in this defense if he is willing to listen and follow instructions. I played 42 kids this year and they all had success. I live in Louisiana. Very good football teams.
