Yesterday I posted my advice to young coaches taking on a coordinator role. The advice was from a response to a message I received. Read it here.
I also received a message from a young defensive coordinator who will be in his first season of coordinating this fall. He asked for resources for defensive game planning. There are a few links in my Game Planning Resources post, but the best I have seen on the Internet are from a series of articles by Jeff Floyd who writes a blog called “You Can Do More.”
Jeff’s blog is definitely worth following, and his series on defensive game planning is very valuable information for a defensive coach. Jeff coached at the University of Central Missouri, William and Jewell, and the high school level. He really details every aspect of what goes into a defensive game plan and provides the tools necessary to work through the process. Here are the links to his series:
I interviewed Jeff for an article on “Flipped Coaching” which will appear in next month’s American Football Monthly. His articles on this topic are worth reading.
