Best of Special Teams Playbook

by Chris Filios

Tom Izzo, head basketball coach at Michigan State and football fanatic, has always stressed the importance of being detailed in every facet of the game.  You will see it all in this special teams playbook.

Drawing wisdom from Hall of Fame coaches, from Vince Lombardi to Mike Ditka, who have all stressed the importance and impact that “Special Teams” have on the outcome of games, Izzo firmly believes that “Special Teams” have been a key ingredient in the program’s success for decades.

Knowing that so many games are decided by one to two possessions or less and that the majority of NCAA Tournament games are decided by even less, there is increased focus on five areas that make up “Special Teams.”

1. Jump ball situations
2. Baseline out-of-bounds
3. Sideline out-of-bounds
4. Free throw situations
5. After time-out plays

In this Special Teams playbook, we examine three of these areas and what some of the most efficient teams of the past several years are running in these situations.

The special teams playbook contains 210 basketball plays from 40 different NCAA teams:

• After timeout (ATO) half court man offense,
• After timeout (ATO) half court zone offense,
• Baseline out of bounds (BLOBs) vs. man,
• Baseline out of bounds (BLOBs) vs. zone,
• Sideline out of bounds (SLOB).

eBook #2 Faces in New Places Playbook

by Chris Filios

Faces in New Places 2017 Playbook has 200 pages of basketball coaching information in this playbook.

At the end of every season, the news that dominates everyone’s attention is the coaching carousel. Who is getting fired? Who is getting hired? What coaches are leaving one job for another? What will the trickle down effect be?

For some coaches, they are looking to move up the ladder. For some, they are looking to get their first head-coaching job. Today, there is a lack of job security in coaching. So in some cases, a veteran coach will go for a change of scenery in hopes of more money, more security, or a return to a place they call home or their dream job. Whatever the situation, with the coaching change comes culture, philosophy, and tactical change.

This season, there are a number of coaching moves that have piqued my interest.

In the “Faces in New Places 2017” playbook, we examine 9 coaches who moved from one head-coaching job to another. The playbook features 190 plays from both veteran and rising coaches: Brad Underwood (Oklahoma State), Bryce Drew (Vanderbilt), Chris Beard (Texas Tech), Jamie Dixon (TCU), Jerod Haase (Stanford), Josh Pastner (Georgia Tech), Kevin Stallings (Pitt), Steve Pikiell (Rutgers), and Tubby Smith (Memphis). These coaches have combined to win over 2,000 games in their careers and over 65% of their games.

Implement the man and zone sets, as well as baseline line out of bounds plays, that these coaches are utilizing to help push their new programs to higher levels of success.

We’ll see if these veterans can continue to have success at their new schools.
