TCU 4-2-5 Defense Explained – Cripes! Get Back to Fundamentals!


TCU’s 4-2-5 Video from Gary Patterson

The next top post of 2011 is one that I think almost everyone will enjoy since everyone loves extensive one on one clinic film from the top minds in coaching. In this post by Cripes! Get Back to Fundamentals!, the TCU head football coach Gary Patterson explains his vaunted 4-2-5 defense, along with the intricacies of his split coverage philosophies and how the front is separated from the coverage. The videos here are very valuable to anyone considering the 4-2-5 defense. I highly recommend visiting Brophy’s post on the 4-2-5 defense for anyone who coaches. It does a great job of illustrating the importance of breaking down the little details of football. It provides game film clips as well if I remember correctly.
