Every defense I have coordinated had an enlarged heart. Thatâ€™s Real-Life lesson #23,556 that Iâ€™ve taught football players and assistant coaches for 40 years.Â A defense with an #enlargedheart will get you hired as a #DefensiveCoordinator over and over again. It will prevent you from getting fired.
Here are some of the 25,362 Real-Life Lessons I have taught to football players and coaches who want to get hired as a #DefensiveCoordinator and not get fired:
- The key to building a mauling defense that will win, win big, win lot of rings, and the key to building a dynasty is 5 XXXL body parts – heart, nerve, backbone, balls, and conscience.
- Your biggest advantage as a #DefensiveCoordinator is the conventional thinking of over 90% of #OffensiveCoordinators. All the wannabe next genius offensive coordinators teach the same mistakes, starting with the myth that you can beat the defenseâ€™s Xs schematically. Thatâ€™s pure bullshit. The biggest mistake offensive coordinators make is teaching their offense how to beat coverage. The teach the same recycled myths – Identify coverage and exploit it. Huge mistake. No offense at any level will ever exploit a defense purely on reading coverage. Xs and Os are irrelevent. What matters is the heart-size of a defenceâ€™s Xs.
- Over 90% never teach their offense the truth about Xs and Os – that X Fitness matters, not just where Xâ€™s line-up and not where they move post-snap. The only way for offences to exploit a defense is to identify the heart-size of every defensive X. Identify conscience size. Identify size of balls – deflated or inflated. Then an offense will have a 100% accurate scouting report of your defense. Otherwise, the opposing offenses are just guessing, just winging it.
- The myth of man-busters and zone-busters taught by over 90% of #OffensiveCoordinators severely limits the opposing offense and makes them extremely predictable. Exploit #offensivecoordinator conventional thinking and you will never get fired.
- To get hired as a #DefensiveCoordinator, be more obsessed with the weight room than with Xs and Os. Make your defense more obsessed with lifting and running than with Xâ€™s and Oâ€™s.Â That’s how you never get fired.
- The #1 place to build an enlarged heart and to build defensive dynasties is in the weight room.
- 5th Degree Strength + Conditioning is the #1 way to turn around a losing defense into a championship defense. Guaranteed. 100% fact. We have 40 years of compelling evidence to prove it.
- If your defense are #LazyLifters, you will never get hired. You will never win except by beating Lazier Lifters.
- The only way to make a name for yourself as #DefensiveCoordinator is by helping all your players make a name for themselves. Put your ego and self-interest aside. Those who help build their playersâ€™ #PersonalBests develop their own coaching #PersonalBest.
Blessings + all good things
