On today’s episode of the Coach and Coordinator podcast, the “Deep Dive on Defense” series continues with guest host and Clovis (Calif.) High School defensive coordinator Chris Vasseur.
This series gives defensive coaches an opportunity to find and share concepts that are most commonly available for their counterparts on offense.
Coach Vasseur is joined by Florida Tech co–defensive coordinator and defensive backs coach Brian Vaughn. Coach Vaughn shares why he blitzes, his blitz blog and the variations of pressures a coach can use on defense.
