Triple Option Football Academy Process: Your First Four Assignments as a Head Varsity Football Coach Running the Triple Option Offense

So, you’ve been hired as a head coach.


What’s that?  You’re running the Triple Option as your offense?


You want to do this right THE FIRST TIME?

Ok, here’s what you do.


Step 1

Meet with the players and inform them that the goals of the offense are the following: Complete verticals for touchdowns, pitch the ball on the edge outside of the force, and run the ball past the penetration…. That’s your offensive mission RIGHT THERE.

Step 2

Hire assistant coaches.  Regardless of how many PAID positions you are able to have, if you’re going to do this right, you require the following: Quarterback Coach, B-Back Coach, A-Back Coach, Receivers Coach, Centers/Guards Coach, Tackles Coach, and an Offensive Assistant.

Step 3

Order the necessary equipment.   Executing the offense doesn’t require much.  All you require are footballs, flat agility bags, and a few discs to set up drills—that’s it.

Step 4

Teach your coaches and players how to practice.  Practices are systematic in nature and involve the following for skill positions: Triple Drill, Midline Drill, Playaction Pass Drill, Constraint Drill, 7-on-7,

Drills that involve the Offensive Linemen are the following: Scoop Drill, Veer Drill, Slide Pass Pro Drill, Base Drill, , Gate Drill, Ace/Fan Drill,

Drills that involve all 11 players in the offense: Bullets Drill, and Live Option Drill.


If you get hired for a head coaching position this off-season or you are in the interview process, contact Triple Option Football Academy Owner, Lou Cella at 570 332 0265, and he will walk you through the process.

This is the Triple Option Football Academy Process—once steps 1-4 are completed, you can start getting into the tactical part of the offense.



The Big Idea in 171 Words

Here’s the problem.  If you can’t block defensive linemen, you’ll never move the ball, you’ll never score points, and you’ll never win a game.

You need to understand why this disconnect occurs to overcome it and win.


“I know many coaches would rather install an offense the traditional way by researching it, visiting colleges that run the offense, and then picking coaches for information.

I have used that same strategy, and I know that it takes about three years to really gain an understanding of the offense and get players to execute it at a high level.

Consequently, in the research method, you do not have any collaboration with experts that are readily available when questions arise or resources that have consistency.

We wanted to give our players an offense that they could be successful with immediately.

We also concluded that by the time we visited colleges, bought DVDs, playbooks, and sent players to college camps to gain skills, we would have invested many times the cost of the camp.”
