Varsity Dual Pass Protection Rules
Coaching the offensive line is arguably one of the most important positions on any football coaching staff. Yes, the offensive coordinator and defensive coordinator will normally be the first two hires for a new head coach.

Good offensive coordinators understand that it is not just the fact that this coach will dictate much of the toughness needed to play up front. It is much more than that.
The offensive coordinator understands that this coach is going to be a big part of keeping the quarterback protected. The coordinator also understands that it doesn’t stop there.
