Defensive coaches play catchup
Thursday, June 26, 2014 3:14 PM
Michigan coach Brady Hoke witnessed the zone blitz as an innovation in the 1990s. These days, more teams are using man-free coverage (man-to-man with the free safety deep) and disguises in the secondary.
"The game keeps evolving from an X's-and-O's standpoint," Hoke said. "It's always that cat-and-mouse, who's going to be ahead of the curve?"
A few weeks ago ESPN ran a piece on offensive coaches collaboration, this is a great read on defense.
"Only the good ones come to Michigan"
