Defensive Coordinator Academyby Kenny Simpson
This is the Defensive Coordinator Academy - All things Defense:
The goal of this Academy is for a DC to have the chance to see all the major areas that must be covered to run a successful defense. While there are many defenses to choose from, and we will not persuade one over another, the great DC’s are able to teach their specific system and teach it well.
This Academy will focus on how to organize your defense with the help of some experts that have been running great defensive structures for years.
Be sure to check out each section. We have placed them in the order we would recommend, but each coach may want to learn at their own pace, or come back and look at each section multiple times.
