Michigan Football Series: Cornerback Man Coverage

with Michael Zordich,
University of Michigan Secondary/Special Teams Coach;
helped Michigan rank 1st in the nation in pass defense in 2016 and 2017, as well as 2nd in the nation in 2018;
All-American as a player (defensive back) at Penn State University (1982 National champions) ;
12-year career in the NFL as a cornerback and safety (drafted by San Diego & played for NY Jets, Phoenix Cardinals, Philadelphia Eagles)

Michigan uses an off man "Scooch" technique and man press coverage to disrupt their opponents' timing in the passing game from the cornerback position. This combination of coverage has kept the Michigan pass defense at or near the top of the country for three years running.

In this video, you'll learn how the "Scooch" off ball man coverage can slow down even the best offensive passing attacks from Michigan Secondary Coach Michael Zordich. Coach Zordich breaks down drills that are simple and effective for teaching the "Scooch" technique, and also gives you information on how to use the "divider" rule to put defenders in the best possible alignment on receivers.

Coverage Options

Zordich shows three options that corners have available depending on their ability to play press coverage. You'll discover a motor step technique for corners that are able to buzz their feet and keep leverage on the receiver. Additionally, see the "1 Step 2" method, which mirrors the release of the receiver and sets up a stun on the receiver. Coach Zordich also details a glide back, which allows for vertical route adjustment and buys time for the corner to diagnose the route.

Practice Drills

Both practice and game footage are utilized to demonstrate press man coverage as Zordich covers 18 drills used in perfecting the press man coverage as well as tackling. You will witness:

  • Set, reset and scrape.
  • How to play the ball when "out of phase" with the receiver.
  • The power foot tackle as well as the cut tackle.
  • Press man crack and replace.
  • Press man "Tailpipe" and low crosser help.

As a bonus, Coach Zordich shows three calls and concepts for manning up versus bunch or stacked sets.

This video is one of the most complete breakdowns for playing man coverage on the market to date. A great option for anyone looking to boost the play of their cornerbacks!

Michigan Football Series: Defensive Line Technique & Drills

with Shaun Nua,
University of Michigan Defensive Line Coach;
former Defensive Line Coach at Arizona State and Navy;
played at BYU; drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2005 NFL draft

Michigan football has a rich tradition of success on defense and much of that is thanks to a defensive line that stuffs up the run game and consistently gets pressure on opposing passers. In this video, you'll get a look at some of the drills and techniques that Michigan Defensive Line Coach Shaun Nua uses with his own players in order to make sure they are some of the best in college football.

Defensive Line Fundamentals

Coach Nua begins this presentation with a description of his philosophy of coaching in terms of creating the right environment for players to reach their potential. He also emphasizes that 'one-size does not fit all' in coaching. Therefore, coaches need to be flexible and able to adapt to meet the needs of their players and team.

Next, Nua demonstrates, using practice footage, the stance and alignments that he teaches his players at Michigan. Several drills are shown that teach the get-off and hand placement required for elite players. In all, you'll learn:

  • Stance and alignments.
  • How to coach the get-off in several unique ways that will carry over to games.
  • Hand placement, strike, and shed in several competitive drills.

Teaching the Pass Rush

Coach Nua continues by detailing the pass rush techniques and skills used at the University of Michigan. He details how defensive linemen must attack the offensive lineman they are rushing, then adjust their path based on the OL's movement. Nua also shows several drills that teach the finer points of footwork and pass rush moves that both interior and edge rushing defensive linemen can use to defeat blocks and attack the QB. You'll get several examples of "counter" moves that defensive linemen must be able to execute when their initial pass rush move doesn't work.

Overall, this is an excellent video presentation of defensive linemen technique. Coach Nua shares several great drills and many excellent coaching points that will help any defensive line coach become a better teacher of the game!
