University of Rhode Island Divide Runs: Creating a Segment Run Catalog: Most offensive outfits can read any defender along the front, but when University of Rhode Island offensive coordinator Pat Murphy got hired he built his entire run game around what he calls “segment” runs, mixing concepts together to produce a divide along the line of scrimmage by reading a particular defender to make sure the QB blocks someone on every play. These divides are altered weekly on two factors: defensive scheme and personnel. And how these runs are communicated, cataloged, and presented each week has been the secret sauce for the Rams, which averaged over 9 yards a carry on these concepts and helped produce 7 wins this season, URI’s highest win total in two decades. Coach Murphy shares his segment run system in this exclusive clinic report. Continue reading.
