When Jimmy Johnson installed his 4-3 Defense at the University of Miami, he built a great defense. It continues to expand and adapt with the evolution of offensive football, year after year.
In this episode of The Football Coaching Podcast, we’ll look back at the origins of the 4-3 Defense, before Miami. The Even 4-3 Defense and Tom Landry’s Flex 4-3 Defense get examined.
Then we’ll break down the basic philosophy and foundations of the Miami 4-3 Defense that I teach today in our 4-3 Defense System.
