(AL) 2008 Nike Coach of the Year Clinic Saturday, March 8, 2008 ½ time under center, ½ time in shotgun Advantage of 2 backs/I backs = don’t have to have great QB 3 key routes in 3-step game: a) Hitch – on LOS b) Slant – 3 step c) Fade
QBs warm up throwing these routes
Hitch Rec. – inside leg up; 2 steps upfield, 1 step back toward LOS QB – quick (1-step) throw at LOS basically a run play Slant Rec. – break at 45º; catch & get upfield; vs. press-man D, run at inside shoulder of DB QB – can be a 1-step or 3-step route Fade – MUST have this route Rec. – if defense is backed off, turn it into a slant QB – 1-step throw Base protection – everyone steps down inside and blocks inside gap Bubble route Rec. – outside receiver runs slant route; can be assigned to block down inside receiver starts backed off LOS a little further than usual; 1st step is lateral “90 Bubble” call = no read; just throw the Bubble route “90 Bubble X Slant” call = read Lber to decide where to throw “90 Bubble X Go” call = X starts in to block, then breaks to fade route “90 Bubble Z Go” call = show Bubble & Z starts Bubble, then breaks downfield off hip of outside receiver in Gun: Slant is 5-step play Fade is a little deeper from MOF, TE should be at hash, outside receiver at top of the numbers high to low read on pass plays Asst. coaches: a) work hard b) be loyal to head coach Curtis 2008, p. 1
