Well, I figure I would reintroduce myself. The first time I was on this site I was an 18-year-old kid that ambitions to be a football coach and an educator. I didn't have a clue about anything. I was so excited to find a coaching site that I joined in 2005. I was a freshman in College and was a student assistant at my HS Alma Mater. After a long hiatus from this site (lost my login info), I decided to come back, and I deleted that introduction dated on December 20th, 2005 and decided to post this one because I looked like a complete idiot. Sorry Tog and Huey LOL.
My name is Jack Dingus. I am currently a Defensive Coordinator in Class 2A in Oklahoma. We run a split defense. I have been in the coaching business for 13 years. Like I mentioned earlier I started coaching when I was 18 years old. Coached my way through college making little money. Decided to stick with it. I am an OL coach by trade; I take pride in coaching the OL but... I can coach receivers, tight ends, and running backs. As far as Defense, I have coached DL, Linebackers, and Corners. I have been in the Spread, Flexbone, I formation, Wing-T. I believe that your system should fit your kids. I also host an OL Coaches Twitter Chat on Monday Nights at 8 pm called the #hogfbchat. I love this website, and I thank Coach Huey and Tog for keeping this great site going all these years!

Hey guys my name is Kito Poblah, I played college ball at Central Michigan and played in the CFL for a few years. I now organize travel teams from Winnipeg, Manitoba in Canada to go down to San Antonio to participate in tournaments during the offseason. I also run online Mentorship programs for Athletes and Coaches. I look forward to getting to know you guys!
Hey y'all! I played CB during 8 years and I've been forced to stop playing after a serious injury this year (I'm 32 yo). Since I'm coaching the DB's of my team. I'm living in France, near Paris. So, I'm not a native english speaker and I apologize for my grammar Zone blitz enthusiast. I'm here to learn the more I can about the game!

Hey everyone, I'm James, I'm HC and offensive coordinator for a 9 man football team in Sydney Australia.
I've only been coaching 3 years. But every year is a struggle due to the popularity of the sport down here and players becoming too old for the division. The age group is 15-19 which does make things a little bit more of a challenge.
Every year we lose a third to half the previous years squad, so we start from scratch every year. So what works last year may not work this year.
I'm here looking for some advice and direction on how to properly manage a program such as this.

I'm J, been around football for about ten years in some capacity or another, mostly film. Headed into my third season of coaching HS ball. Spent my first season as a slappy helping mainly at the JV level, moved to a WAY DOWN program as a WR/DB coach and head into this season as a first-time DC. I'm chitting my pants at the prospect of being a play-caller trial by fire I suppose.
We're moving from a 4-3 to 3-3 Stack and transitioning from a grab-bag B.S. spread Frankenstein crap offense to the Pistol Wing-T.
Love the forum, I've been lurking for a few years and have decided to become more engaged in hopes of supplementing my learning, because I'm green as green can be!
Head coach at a school in the Pacific Northwest that is in the biggest classification. Grew up in a football family where my dad was a High School Head coach for over 25 years. This is my first post on this site but I have been a member for a long time and skim though the board constantly looking for advice.
I'm 31 years old, going into 3rd year as HFC. On offense we are mostly 1 back, multiple formation, no huddle. We play with a Wing/TE in our base personnel. On defense we are a 4-3 attacking D. Most of our philosophy on D comes from Pat Narduzzi.
I'm a fan of this site and continue to enjoy modst of the content on here!

I'm the offensive coordinator at a 3A school in Texas. Multiple formation,Multiple tempo, zone, power, rpo type offense. I'm a young guy that still has a lot to learn, and I love talking ball in general. My Dad is a Hc in Tx, so it's something I've done all my life. Look forward to reading and learning from some of the best.
I've been reading through the forum a bit and i am very excited to join this community. I have been in love with football, Passionate about football for as long as i can remember. I played a bit before a knee injury but i moved on to studying football, Particularly scouting college prospects going into the draft, since about 2002-2003. Now i am looking for more, so much more. My goal is to take the scattered knowledge i have and focus it on best positioning myself towards a career in coaching. Football is already a living breathing 24 hour part of my life as it is now, I would just like to take the next step into coaching and sharing this game that i love and respect with anyone it could possibly help.
I look forward to learning from everyone here and hope to contribute in anyway i can. Also, could anyone point me in the direction of a FAQ? Looking for things like where/how to find game film? Useful programs to help with film,playbook,personnel?
Now. I'm off to dive into some defense

Coaches. I have 25+ years coaching experience on Offense, Defense, and Special teams. I have run a Pro style, west coast, option, and spread offense. For most of my career I have run a 4-4 on defense with some stemming to tuff front. I have taken the last two years off and been involved in coaching clinics and private business.
I'm 24, was currently playing for amateur league in Brazil when my herniated disk stopped me from playing. Now I'm one of the Coaches (more like an assistant coach). I've got no experience coaching whatsoever, and I hope I can learn a lot from here. Right now, I'm focusing on Defense, since I was DL when I played. Even though I still have hope that I can play again, I might be sticking to Coaching to avoid surgery. Any tips are welcomed. Any books are welcomed. I like the style that Nick Saban has, but honestly, I don't know if I'm able to teach adults things that are taught to kids. We have a lot of obstacles: our training is made at public parks, we don't have lots of equipments, we have limited resources. But we do what we can, and a little more .
I am a career football coach that has been fortunate to work with some quality guys in the business. I just discovered this forum when a coaching buddy of mine told me he enjoyed the insights on it and thought I would enjoy it as well. I look forward to learning and helping others in the process.
I grew up in Ohio and have coached all over this great country.

My name is Jerry Campbell and I have been coaching for 44 years and hope I have 44 left. I currently coach in Clovis, California after coaching 14 years in Texas. Tremendous respect for Coach Huey and the site Coach has provided for coaches to share positive aspects on the great game of football.

Alright, here goes! I'm 28 years old, born and bred in Victoria Australia. 18 months ago I knew barely anything about football. I grew up playing soccer. I'd watched a game of football when I was a teenager, on Foxtel, when I was on holiday at my aunt's. First game I watched was Steelers v Packers I think, in 2009. And that was the last game of football I watched until last year when I realized my local station aired 3 live games every Monday morning.
Well... I became completely hooked. I was watching football games, football TV shows, reading football, listening to football podcasts, trying to teach myself some of the basics of throwing a ball. Luckily my partner and our daughter got hooked as well and I actually had someone to throw and catch with. No-one else in our social circle really gets why we're so in love with this game.
I'm learning, slowly, but there's so much that I don't know. I'm eager to understand, and I'm eager to participate. There's a local competition in my State, closest team is a 2 hour drive. I think that next season I'm going to just have to make the drive and get involved.
I have a curiosity about coaching, I love helping and motivating people. I currently run a social soccer group, and I find that incredibly rewarding. But football just seems to be on this whole other level of being able to impact people. I'm sure I sound like a gushing idiot, but I'm kind of in love with your sport.
I'm not a head coach, I'm not an assistant coach. I'm just kind of involved in this strange love affair with a sport whose homeland is 15,000 km away.
Your forum seems to be an amazing collection of incredibly smart, experienced football people. If anyone is interested in chatting to me about how they got started, when they knew they wanted to coach, how they've made it work, I'd be very appreciative. Don't want to waste anyone's time, but I just feel like I need to start this journey somewhere.
