Michigan Football: Offensive Line Coach — Part I

No offense but either pay attention, look up offensive line coaching videos, look up something on blocking scheme, footwork, technique and what not and learn something before commenting about such stuff as a coach being fired after a spring practice.

Watch the spring game again on BTN!

I saw vastly improved fundamentals, footwork and awareness of our offensive line. From all three groups.

I did not see lineman blocking air, I did not see bad steps, confused schemes, guys just blown up and beaten straight up before the play even began. I didn’t see bad snaps, lineman going left while the play is going right.

For all intent and purpose I saw much better more confident play.

Was it pretty, nope, was it like a well oiled machine, nope. But they demonstrated the basics of zone scheme inside and outside very well. They doubled, scraped and got to the second level. They stuck with their block and created some lanes for running backs.

They have a lot of work to do.

But jumping off the cliff and calling for coaches heads, seriously. I hope you deal well with it when people you work with calls for your job when they have no clue what you do or if what you are doing is successful or not!
