Andrew Coverdale is a mad scientist. If you have never seen him speak at a clinic, or read The Bunch Attack, you may not realize this. The man is not just a genius, but an extremely successful football coach who also happens to be a genius.
Coverdale has been a dominant force as an Offensive Coordinator in Kentucky. His spacing route concepts are brilliant. There are Power Points on his stuff that are incredible, and they are all over the internet (he knows, its okay) – I’m not doing the Google search for you.
The Bunch Attack
Coverdale and Dan Robinson co-wrote The Bunch Attack in the late 1990′s. It was one of the first coaching books I purchased that was serious (not the stuff for sale in Barnes & Noble). And this year was the first time I felt like I could understand it.
This is a thick book, over 200 pages. With small fonts, little pictures… I mean a real grown up book, but about football. The detail is incredible. I had head aches trying to read it a few years ago. Pick it up if you get a chance, it really is a good read. How many books who’s title imply that it is on a single formation (and truly a single route concept), but take 200+ pages to explain that? And go in depth on Pass Protection!?
