Teams that employ a 3-4 defensive scheme are looking for players with specific skill sets and physical traits at every level of the defense. In this video, Super Bowl champion coach Bill Cowher and I go through a typical conversation that would happen between a head coach and a GM or scouting director of a team. This type of communication is key. The coach must be able to explain what he’s looking for in a player, and what the needs of his system are so the scouting department can go out and find players who are good fits, and can therefore contribute sooner than later.
In this video Coach Cowher talks about the specific types of defensive players he wanted in his coaching days, and for you Steelers fans out there, he has some pretty interesting stories to tell too.Add to My RFN
