The Multiple West Coast Offense

Overview
 Introduction
 Philosophy of the system
 How the run game is set up
 How the passing game is set up
 Basic drop back pass protection
 Incorporating two separate sets of progressions
 The formations system
 The motions
 How the play-calls are made
 How the call sheet is set up and used
Introduction
 This is a complete offensive system
 Once the language of the system is learned and
installed, the possible play-calls and formations
are virtually endless
 Easy to understand
 Easy to learn
 Easy to install
 Works with most any type of offense
 Extremely flexible
Philosophy of the System
 Create a precision-timed offense
 Teach a technique based offense
 Use multiple formations
 Use a multitude of plays
 Create an offense that is hard to prepare
for because of the variety of the offense
 Take what the defense gives us most all of
the time
 Be patient
How the Run Game Is Set Up
 Basicline splits
 The hole numbering

 Basic pass protection
– “King” and “Queen” calls – if we want to get both
backs out.
King
A “King” call free releases the Back
on the Strong-side.
– The other back will check release to the
“Quick-side.”
 The Center, Strong-side Guard, and
Tackle will block to the strong-side.
 The Quick-side Guard and Tackle will
block to the Quick-side, and the back
will check release to the Quick-side.

 The use of built-in hot routes
– Routes that should open up on the quarterback’s third
step in his drop.

Incorporating Two Separate
Sets of Progressions
 Similar to having two separate pass plays
in one play-call
– The QB comes to the line and decides which
two - three progression read to go with
 Examples:
– Split Right 414 Swing / “V” Queen
– Trey Right 680 Corner / Cut King

How to Call Motions
 Every eligible receiver has a specific
“tag”call.
 The “tag” occurs at the beginning of the
play call to alert the specific player.
 We motion to the called formation.
Receivers Motions
 ZOOM: “Z” goes in motion across the
formation.
 ZIP: “Z” goes in short motion into the
formation.
 EXIT: “X” goes in motion across the
formation.
 EASY: “X” goes in short motion into the
formation.

How the Play Is Called
 Motion (possible)
 Formation
 Play-call
– Blocking (master call in run game)
– Pass pattern (in passing game)
– Protection (in passing game)
 Snap count
– Red (on one), white (on two), blue (on three)
What the Call Would Sound
Like If It Were a Run Play.
 Fly – near right – 24 slam – on white, on white –
ready break.
– “Fly” would be the motion.
– “Near right” would be the formation we want to end
up in.
– “24 slam” tells the HB (2) to go through the 4 hole
and the blocking scheme is slam.
– Vs a 50 front, the probable line call would be “Den”.
– “On white” tells everyone the snap count is on two.
 If a player forgot the snap count at the line of scrimmage, he
would say “check – check” and he would be told “white”.

QB

FLY NEAR RIGHT 24 SLAM


What the Call Would Sound
Like If It Were a Pass Play.
 Zoom – split left – 414 swing / v - queen, on
blue, on blue – ready break.
– Zoom tells the Z receiver to go in motion across the
formation.
– Split left means we want to end up in a split left
formation.
– 414 tells the single receiver (X) to run a curl route, the
inside receiver on the two-receiver side (Y) to run a
flat route, and the outside receiver on the two-receiver
side to run a curl route.
What the Call Would Sound
Like If It Were a Pass Play.
– “Swing / v” tells the h back to run a swing route and
the f back to run a v route.
– Queen tells the line to zone the quick-side and man
the strong-side. This will release the back on the
quick-side into the pattern right away. The remaining
back on the strong side will check release into the
pattern.
– “On blue” tells everyone the snap count is on three.
 If we wanted to audible to a different play, blue is the live
color since we called the count on blue.
