A Closer Look At Coen’s Offensive Philosophy

Via Sports Illustrated,

“Like many great running teams, Kentucky uses the play-action to open their passing game. Kentucky’s offense frequently uses the run threat to sucker in second-level defenders, then capitalizes on an opened-up field with a well-timed pass.”

Look for Coen to have similar philosophy to recently departed Dave Canales.
