I love Quarters Coverage. Yes, I love Cover 1. I like a spot drop Cover 3 for the simplicity. But the beauty of Quarters Coverage is the answer.
Built in answers to absolutely anything the offense can do to you. This is a coverage package I learned from Shap Boyd and that has been a favorite for years.
Quarters Coverage is a pattern match coverage. It takes a lot of time to teach, but you’ll be happy you invested in it in the end.
Listen to this episode of Joe Daniel Football Quick Clinic, then check out How To Coach Quarters Coverage for a video that explains all the different checks we use.

In today’s Quick Clinic I’ll explain the new rule change for coaches who might not be familiar. Then we’ll talk about whether or not this is the right direction for the NFHS to be headed.
You can get all of the details on the new rule changes from the NFHS Website in this article.
The Hawk Tackle is a hot topic among defensive football coaches today. The truth is, it’s not new.
The adaptation of the Rugby style tackle is all a part of keeping the head out. Reducing concussions. But many coaches are finding this to be a more effective way to get the ball carrier to the ground, too.
At a recent clinic, I learned more about the rugby-style tackle from… a rugby coach! Who is now a football coach.
In today’s Quick Clinic. I’ll talk about how to coach the Hawk Tackle. And some key points you might want to change.
JDFB Insiders includes a full length Web Clinic on how to coach the Hawk Tackle, including drill progression for teaching your players to execute on game day.

Cover 1 or Man Free Coverage is one of my favorites. We feel like it is easy to teach the concepts, and difficult for high school quarterbacks to attack.
In this episode of The Joe Daniel Football Quick Clinic, I'll show you some of the advantages of this coverage. It has been a great coverage in our 4-2-5 Defense System available to JDFB Insiders.

In a previous JDFB Quick Clinic, we talked about running Cover 2. Great coverage, but not used a whole lot today.
When you do see it, you need to know the weaknesses. Where should you attack Cover 2?
In this episode I mentioned the Umbrella. I said I'd link to something on it, but I lied because right now I don't have anything outside of JDFB Insiders on the Umbrella. I'll work on that.
My name was brought up in a thread on Coach Huey. I responded, but really didn't want to get into it too much. Not my thing.
However, I did think the topic was worth addressing. At least, it gives me a good topic for the Quick Clinic.
You don't see a lot of Cover 2 anymore. But some coaches swear by it.
The coverage was the primary coverage behind the original Miami 4-3 Defense with Jimmy Johnson in the 1980's.
That means it's worth taking a look at (they were really good).
