Three-point Stance Spring Cleaning

View CoverRead All Articles

Here are three schools with new coaches who have big plans on offense:

1. Notre Dame

Gone with QB Jimmy Clausen is Charlie Weis's pro-style offense. Brian Kelly is implementing his pass-first spread scheme that emphasizes fade and seam routes. The key will be how quickly junior QB Dayne Crist gets comfortable in it.

2. South Florida

Reducing the team's use of the shotgun spread, Skip Holtz is installing more two-back sets, play-action passes and Wildcat formations.

3. Texas Tech

The Red Raiders aren't ditching the Air Raid offense that former coach Mike Leach made famous, but this spring Tommy Tuberville is giving QBs Steven Sheffield (below) and Taylor Potts more freedom to run.
