By USA Football | Posted 9/12/2018


This week on the Coach and Coordinator podcast, host Keith Grabowski talks about some of the different ideas on how to execute the 4-minute offense and how to handle some play calls in a backed-up situation. Two situations may be over looked in the scheme of practice and can become crucial in games when managed and or executed poorly. Grabowski points out the commonalities in these situations and explains the benefit of addressing both these issues together.
