The Double Wing Offense is one of the most feared and brutal offensive attacks in football. Learn it or lose to it!

Years ago, I wanted to learn the Double Wing Offense and turned to the Internet for resources. After all, you can’t just visit your local college to learn this stuff. 

I found an amazing resource to learn from. That was Coach Jerry Vallotton’s “The Toss” book, available at DoubleWing.org. Easily the best resource I found then, and still great. 

This episode of The Football Coaching Podcast is your chance to learn the Double Wing Offense from Coach Val! Check it out as we talk about the philosophy behind the offense, the base play series, and the details of coaching The Toss, Coach Val’s Super Power play.

How can you simplify the Play Action Pass for your offense and still be effective? All you need to know is in this episode.

The Play Action Pass is a critical part of any offensive playbook. You’ve got base runs, counters, and play action. That creates a simple series based offensive package. 

You can go overboard in preparing your Play Action Pass game, though. The key is to get the maximum amount of benefit with the minimal amount of teaching. 

Check out this episode of The Football Coaching Podcast to find out how we’ve simplified the Play Action Pass for the Pistol Power Offense System.

What are the Special Teams schemes your football team needs to be running? Here’s my favorites.

Every football coach knows how important Special Teams are to winning football games. If it’s one-third of the game, why don’t coaches spend a whole lot more time on it?

There’s good reason. If you’re going to be a Coach Simple, Play Fast, Win type of coach - it needs to carry over to your Special Teams philosophy.

Check out this episode of The Football Coaching Podcast to find out the special teams schemes that have worked best for my teams. And how you can add them to your own football team.

How do you get the most out of 7 on 7 football this off-season? Don’t waste your team’s time - follow these tips.

I’m not the biggest fan of 7 on 7, and that’s no secret. It’s not because it’s an offensive drill or because there’s anything wrong with the concept, either. It’s more about how 7 on 7 has evolved in the football landscape over the years.

But the truth is, 7 on 7 football can be really valuable for your team. It’s a chance to learn the route concepts, learn the coverage concepts, and get better as a football program. You just need to do it the right way. 

Check out these 10 tips for getting the most from 7 on 7 football this off-season. And remember, it doesn’t matter if you’re winning with no pads on in June.

Your 4-3 Defense Linebacker Reads are critical to your run stopping defense. Here’s how to get the job done.

The Miami 4-3 Defense has proved itself time and again to adapt to every change that offenses have thrown at it in the last 30+ years. At the core is a sound, aggressive defense that can play fast.

This episode of The Football Coaching Podcast looks at the Linebacker Reads for the 4-3 Defense System. We’ll talk about the options you have, the thought process I’ve been through over the last decade in testing different options, and how to coach the most effective Linebacker Reads I’ve learned for the 4-3 Defense.

Your football team’s defensive playbook just didn’t get the job done last season. Is it time for a change?

I’ve been spending a lot of time focusing on the reasons you should NOT change your defensive playbook. Way too many coaches jumping from shiny object to shiny object.

But there are reasons why you SHOULD make a change. Remember, only a Sith deal in absolutes. 

This episode of The Football Coaching Podcast shares the 8 reasons why you might want to change that defensive playbook for the 2020 season… and hopefully for the last time!

The Wishbone Offense might not be as popular as it once was. But we can still learn a lot from a 1970s Arkansas Playbook.

Download the Arkansas Wishbone Offense Playbook

The Miami 4-3 Defense was originally developed to shut down the Wishbone Offense that Barry Switzer was running at Oklahoma in the 1980s. But we’re going to go a little further back. 

Today’s playbook breakdown is on the 1970s Arkansas Wishbone Offense. It’s a really well laid out playbook from the Lou Holtz era (that’s the claim anyway). Plenty to learn from any football coach, whether you run the Option or not!

Quarters Coverage is the perfect fit for your 4-3 Defense. But you can’t let Pattern Matching slow your defense down.

Quarters Coverage can mean a lot of things to a lot of different coaches. Cover 4? 2-Read? Palms? Hey who knows… but here’s how we do Quarters Coverage as of now, in 2019. 

A lot has changed over the last 12 years since I started running Quarters Coverage. It’s a pattern match coverage that requires you to have some pretty good Safeties. But if you’ve got the horses, and the time to teach it… this is a great way to coach a winning football defense!

Check out the episode for an in-depth look at updating Quarters Coverage for the 2020 Season.

Is there a perfect Offensive Playbook for your Football Team? Probably, but it might not be for the reasons you think.

Following up on last week’s show on choosing the perfect defense, this week we’re working on finding the right offensive playbook for your football team. It’s a little different.

I’ll walk you through eight different offensive playbooks that might fit your team. It’s not an exhaustive list by any means, but a good enough look for you to get a good idea on how to figure out which one is right for you. 

At the end of the day, none of these offensive systems are better or worse. Every single one of them can and has won championships. But there’s one that’s right for you as a coach. Find it, and then STICK TO IT!

What’s the best football defense for your team to run? There is no ‘right’ defense, but there’s a right one for you.

Wasn’t planning to do this show, but it’s a good time for it. If your defense wasn’t ‘lights out’ last season, or if you’re just moving into coaching or rising to a coordinator position, you’re probably looking for that ‘right’ football defense. 

I can end your search for the Holy Grail of defense right now. It doesn’t exist. But there is definitely a right defense for you to latch onto and become the expert at. This episode is going to help you choose the best football defense for you and your football team. Then help you stick to it.

Once upon a time, the I-Formation Offense was dominating the High School football world. And it’s not dead yet.

When I started coaching way back when, we were lining up in the I-Formation Offense. Running the toss sweep, Iso, and trap. And it was a pretty good offense.

The I-Formation Offense is not dead in the high school football landscape. In today’s episode I’ll break down when you should use the formation, how to make it a part of your offense, and we’ll put together a basic playbook for the I-Formation.

The Miami 4-3 Defense was the foundation of my understanding of defensive football. And it’s still a great System.

The Miami 4-3 Defense is where it all started for me. Not the first defense I ever ran, but the first time I really understood how a defense works. 

How do all the parts fit together? Why do you spill the football? Who’s the force player? Why does Coverage have to match the defensive front? 

Learning the Miami 4-3 Defense put it all together for me. I’m going to share what I’ve learned about the 4-3 Defense over the course of Season 6 of the Football Coaching Podcast. And how some of my views have changed. 

Check out this podcast to learn the foundations of the 7 man front in the 4-3 Defense System, plus choosing the right personnel to fill those spots.

It’s never a good idea to make huge changes for your football team in the middle of the season. Not if you’re a Coach Simple, Play Fast, Win coach. It’ll just slow your kids down.

Each adjustment is ranked according to the return on investment. That ROI is estimated by how much practice time it takes to implement the adjustment compared to how much better it’ll make your team. Listen to the show, then download the PDF above and work through the list with your staff!

Perfect Thursday, the last practice plan you run before Game Day. Here’s the step by step guide to get your players ready.

If your Quarterback fakes can freeze the defense, your offense has the advantage on every snap. Here’s how to make it happen. 

Coach Dan Gonzalez has been working with Quarterbacks and the passing game for a long time. He’s a true expert on the subject. So I asked him to get on the phone and talk Quarterback ball handling for this week’s Football Coaching Podcast. 

We go into detail about coaching the hand-off and coaching multiple different Quarterback fakes for your Play Action passing game in any offense. We also touch on zone read ball handling, drills for improving your exchanges in the backfield, and plenty more.

Under center, Pistol or Gun alignment. Doesn’t matter. It’s all here on this episode of The Football Coaching Podcast!

The 33 Stack Defense is one of my favorites. Fast. Aggressive. Attacking. Simple. The Stacks are a big part of that.

The 3-5-3 Defense, Georgia Military style, was the first defense I ever installed on my own. I’ve loved it ever since. Even when running other fronts as a base, the 3-3-5 Defense (or 5-3, or any combination of letters and numbers you want) has always been available as a change-up in our package. 

This episode of The Football Coaching Podcast breaks down the feature that makes the defense unique. The stacks. It’s a great look at the concepts that are central to our 33 Stack Defensive System at Joe Daniel Football, and what you should look out for as a stack defense coach. Check it out!

The Unbalanced Single Wing is a great offense. What if we could use the concepts and formation with our existing System? 

A few years ago I sat down in a Glazier Clinic that Rick Darlington was presenting. Coach Darlington is a Single Wing guru from Florida and an incredibly entertaining speaker. I was just there to learn something I didn’t know and be entertained.

What I got was a lot more than that. It sparked a few ideas. I realized that the plays being run in the base package (which does NOT involve any ‘Spinner’ plays) were straight out of our Pistol Power Offense System.

Not long after that, I was adapting the Unbalanced Single Wing formation to the Pistol Power Offense System. That became the centerpiece of our very successful short yardage and 2-point conversion package. 

In this episode of The Football Coaching Podcast, I’m sharing how that System was created with you. Plus you can download the Unbalanced Single Wing in the Pistol Power Offense play sheet up by entering your email up above here.

Pre-Practice periods can be extremely valuable in your football practice plans. But you need to use them right. 

Pre-practice has been a huge difference maker for practice planning, but it only works when you use it right. That means educating yourself, the rest of the coaching staff and your players on the purpose and execution of the pre-practice periods.

This is a great place to get extra work. To steal practice time, without wearing down your players. Non-contact drills, reviewing and reinforcing foundational football skills. 

Check out this episode of The Football Coaching Podcast to learn all about how you can use Pre-Practice to make your football team better this season.
