Feeding the Postby Christian Mueller
A sign in the men's basketball locker room at Xavier University reads, "The only good pass......is caught." As a coach who's always valued the teaching of fundamentals in order to limit turnovers, I've never forgotten that sign. If you want to have a great post presence in your offense, you'll need to teach your team the best methods to pass that ball inside. Feeding the post doesn't need to be difficult. During my time at Valparaiso University our team had tremendous success with our post game. Now, in Feeding the Post, I'm showing the passing techniques and teaching progression I've used for years; the same techniques that led to our team being ranked 11th nationally in fewest turnovers per game! Replete with teaching points on screen and college game clips to show examples and non-examples, this film is sure to give you a number of drills and techniques to effectively teach your team to pass the ball inside for those high-percentage scoring opportunities you want...and need!
Coach Mueller has nine years experience as both a head coach and assistant at the Division 1, 2 and NAIA levels. Most recently, Coach Mueller directed post play at the University of the Incarnate Word. In the 2011-12 season, he was instrumental in the team’s march to the Lone Star Conference title game.
Mueller’s specialty is coaching post play. In his first four years coaching in college, five of his post players were recognized as 1st-Team All-Conference. Two eventually signed professional contracts to play overseas. One was an honorable mention All-American. And still another finished her career ranked 18th all-time in career FG percentage.
After working with the Cardinals in 2011-12, Mueller took over the head coaching duties at Round Rock Christian Academy, serving as boys’ varsity coach. In the 2012-2013 season he turned around a program that had gone 1-19 the previous year and led them to 18 wins, a district championship, and an Elite 8 TAPPS 3A finish.
