The Coach

Coach Paul Alexander is a 36 year veteran NFL and major college football coach. An Academic All American football player, he began coaching at Penn State, then University of Michigan and Central Michigan before taking on his first NFL coaching  assignment with the New York Jets in 1991. For the next 23 years he was the offensive line coach of the Cincinnati Bengals where he helped set a number of NFL and club records. In 2017, Pro Football Focus ranked his offensive line #1 statistically in pass protection over the 11 year life of their measure; also in 2017, he was once again recognized by Sports Illustrated as the top offensive line coach. In 2018, Alexander joined the Dallas Cowboys as their offensive line coach. Part of of his success lies in the fact that he is always learning — always striving to push beyond the limits of his comfort zone. This is critical for remaining competitive in any high performing career, as the bar is always moving from play to play, and from game to game.

One of my favorite courses on here. Great details to coaching football and blocking more specifically. Really learning from the best here. High-hand low-hand is game changing. Strive to be this good of a coach one day. Great visuals and mind provoking ideas that make sense. Highly recommend all coaches to watch this. (The Seahawks hawk tackling video for blocking)
