“Leave it better than you found it”

Principles/Logistics of the No Huddle Offense



Tempo/Mindset

Question>> What is your goal?
  • Control mind and tempo of BOTH TEAMS
  • We want the appearance of hyper speed
  • Physical in the run

Meetings quick reactions make quick reactors
  • Players need to ask questions, not always coach driven/lecture
  • Make sure QBs come into meeting with questions
  • QBs learn from each other!

Practice - make it harder than the game
  • It should include unexpected situations
  • Helps to narrow their focus, leave outside distraction off the field

Weight Room - This is where you prepare to become a great football player!

Make your physical fitness a real AND physiological weapon.

This is taught as a fundamental just like blocking and tackling.

Playbook
How many words do use?
Motions?
Shifts?
Formations?

Cadence/Snap Count/True Tempo
  • The offense controls when the ball is snapped.
  • You can manipulate and stress the defense before you snap the ball.
  • You give the QB or the Offensive playcaller a tremendous advantage using the time at the LOS instead of the huddle.

Communication-Pre Snap
How do get plays in?
Signals
Signs
Numbers
Coaches/Players/Managers
Wristbands


Use terms/phrases that your team can identify with…
Holtz/ROCKNE
Kelly/BREY


At Oregon….
We used ONE to signal to LINE
And ONE to signal to SKILLED

Practice
  • Whatever it is...keep it game like as possible
  • Keep your coaching as game like as possible...NO REDOS...have a “NEXT PLAY” mentality
  • Number of plays vs number of minutes (The defense on a different schedule usually…
  • Use walkthroughs tempo for teaching periods to rest/recover and adjust when tired
Game Planning
  • Whatever you run
  • You cater to the QB- sometimes you want to call it; sometimes he checks
  • You make it more difficult to disguise their defense
  • You find or create mismatches 
  • Always dictate tempo-mind games and stress
  • Brand new every week in the first series >>>> SHIFTS,ACTIONS,ROUTE,FORMATION

***QBs are becoming too much like a specialized position.
Too much GURU/drill work.
More Competition is needed to be successful!!
QUICKEST WAY to communicate a play?
USE ONE WORD for everything= Formation,Strength,Play PERSONNEL TOO!

TENDENCY BREAK= Have one formation that has each of the following
  • STRONG RUN
  • WEAK RUN
  • PLAY ACTION
  • VERTICAL

I was writing fast and furious anyone else in attendance feel free to fill in the blanks at

ZONE STICK by Coach Banks!

"Don’t change the play, change the presentation." 
Noel Mazzone



As all of us use the offseason to research changes and updates to our offenses,  I have come to one conclusion, FIND multiple ways to run the same play and not add several new plays. An example of this lies with "America’s RPO"… Zone-Stick!



Here is a clip of the play and three variations.

Play 1: Directly from the 3x1 alignment.




Play 2: Starting in 2x1 pro alignment and using motion to create the 3x1 alignment.

PRO clips at VIMEO


Play 3: Starting in 2x2 and using motion to achieve 3x1 alignment.

Play 4: Another way to window dress the 3x1 alignment is to go Trips with the TE away.
