Kyle Ohradzansky, Findlay- Coordinating an Offenseby Lauren's First and Goal
One of the most important lessons he learned early on is understanding the difference between coordinating an offense and calling plays. Coordinating an offense is about leading a group of people, including players, coaching staff, and support staff, to achieve a common goal. It involves establishing a culture and philosophy, building a system and process, and holding everyone accountable to high standards and expectations.
In contrast, play calling is the act of making in-game decisions, such as when and how to call certain plays to generate specific results. It involves timing, feel, and rhythm between the play caller and the players on the field.
Both coordinating an offense and calling plays are essential for a successful coaching career, but it's crucial to recognize the distinct responsibilities and skills required for each role.
In this course, Kyle Ohradzansky takes you through the job of coordinating an offense step-by-step showing specific examples that illustrate what it means to coordinate an offense.
