New Research: Teaching/Drilling Slide Step Footwork in Off Man Coverage – Like most DB coaches, Steven Dudley had previously relied on teaching the traditional back pedal in off man technique. But with Fort Hays State University transitioning to more of a quarters based scheme, he found that his players were struggling with maintaining the tempo needed to come in and out of breaks. The slide step provided the proper body position to break on all routes. The results were tangible: his unit rose to the second best pass defense in the conference and interceptions rose from 5 to 9. Both starters were all-conference helping the Tigers win its first bowl game in the history of the program.  In his X&O Labs clinic report, Coach Dudley details the drill work and coaching points to teach the slide step technique in off-man coverage. Click here to read the report.
