Coach Bill Weiss is has been the Head Football Coach at Chisago Lakes High School in Minnesota for 19 seasons. His teams won their 2013 and 2014 Conference Championships.
Coach Weiss joins us to talk about putting together a successful program on both sides of the ball. On April 27, 2016 at 9:00pm ET he’ll be talking Defensive Line Technique on a JDFB Insider Exclusive Web Clinic.
Coach Weiss talks about his Triple Option Offense and 4-3 Defense and why consistency has been important. He also shares how to adjust your playbook for your players each year.
His passion is on the Defensive Line, though. And that’s where we’ll focus in on philosophy and technique for playing tough up front.

This week’s episode is nothing but a rant. Seriously. I was set off by one comment from a coach I don’t even know.
The comment was by new Georgia Tech head basketball coach Josh Pastner. I read about it in an article on football scoop (read it here).
The whole thing is ridiculous. If you want to be the guy who works 100 hours a week or more, great. Sometimes I am too, but it’s not because I want to be.
I’m sure not making anyone else do it, either.
So I turned on the microphone and went on a rant for Episode 157 of The Football Coaching Podcast.
Let me be clear. I don’t care about Josh Pastner, or Georgia Tech Basketball. He may be a great person. The comments may be out of context.
The article really just clicked a little something that I hear all of the time. From coaches, from business men, from teachers. From everyone.
You do not need to work yourself to death, neglecting your family and your health. You certainly don’t need to wear it as a badge of honor.
Some guys love the “grind.” Working from 4am to midnight.
Sleeping just long enough to keep from stumbling through the day. Mumbling something about brains.
This podcast is a message to the guys who are not that guy. You don’t have to be.
For the guy who wants to be… do you, bro. Just know that there are other ways to succeed.
In this episode, I also mentioned The Productivity Project by Chris Bailey. Here’s the link
Are you using empty formations in your offense? If not, you need to listen to this episode.
Incorporating empty formations into your offense is easy. You should do it without actually changing what you do or who you are.
The advantage is that we’re either getting Cover 0, or a really clean look inside the box. I like either one.
For many defensive coordinators, myself included, the first answer to empty formations is to load the box. Bring heat. Make you get the ball out in a hurry.
But the truth is, once you burn them… decisions have to be made. Stay in Cover 0 and risk getting roasted again? Or give the offense a 3-2 box or a 4-1 box.
Those 5 man boxes are so clean. You’ve got hats on hats. They are respecting your receivers.
To an athletic Quarterback, this is a dream. You can really open up your running game now!
Get all the details on how to use empty formations in your offense. Listen to this week’s episode of The Football Coaching Podcast!
You know how important leadership is to your football team. If you don’t have it, you really know how important leadership is.
When coaches are trying to change the path that a program is on, leadership is the first place we look. No one knows that better than Coach Chris Zablocki.
Following a string of 9 straight playoff appearances at Cedar Grove-Belgium High School (WI), Coach Zablocki was ready for a new challenge.
He found that challenge at Sheboygan North High School (WI). Chris took over in 2015 after the team struggled through a winless season the year before.
Changing a culture and turning a program around are not an easy task. But Coach Zablocki has a plan. One he’s used before.
In this episode of The Football Coaching Podcast, you get details about the foundation of Coach Zablocki’s plan to change a football program. And it starts with building leadership.
JDFB Insiders will get a much deeper look into Chris Zablocki’s plan for establishing leadership and turning a program around. On April 14, 2016 at 9:00pm Eastern, 6:00pm Pacific, Chris will be presenting an exclusive web clinic for JDFB Insiders.
