About the Author

Dan Gonzalez began his coaching career when he was given the responsibility of handling passing game quality control during his senior season as a player at the University of Texas. After graduation, he served one season as an assistant at Ranger College, then moved on to serve as the quarterback coach at Abilene Christian University from 1996 to 1997 before returning as the offensive coordinator at Ranger College. From 1998 to 1999 at Ranger College, he produced all-conference selections at quarterback and wide receiver. He was also in charge of administrative operations and was the academic advisor for the football program.

Gonzalez then spent two seasons as the offensive coordinator at North Lamar High School in Paris, Texas. After two seasons, he joined the Lenoir-Rhyne University (formerly Lenoir-Rhyne College) staff in January 2002 as the quarterback and wide receiver coach and co-offensive coordinator. Dan Gonzalez rejoined the Abilene Christian University coaching staff for the 2005 season. The 2005 campaign featured two all-conference selections at wide receiver, including the development of a sophomore receiver who would go on to finish his career as the school and conference record holder in receptions and receiving yardage. Gonzalez frequently engages in staff clinics, quarterback camps, and private consultations.

If you are a young coach trying to increase your knowledge base, an older coach who is trying to implement a more complex passing attack to the offense, or just someone who wants to learn about the modern passing game then you must get this book. You can utilize the content in the book two ways: 1) you can install the exact offense at your school, or 2) take the 9 concepts discussed and implement those into your offense using your own terminology. Either way it is a win-win. I believe a coach who has read through this book and The Bunch Attack by Coverdale and Robinson will be equipped with the knowledge to install a devastating passing attack.

this is a good book for people who are interested in learning about the west coast offense and the concepts behind them. This is a good source for any coordinator offensive or defensive to understand the passing game.

The author, Dan Gonzalez, deserves a Ph.D. in Offensive Football. When it comes to the passing game, and how to attack defenses, this book is a fantastic resource. Having said that, if you are not an experienced football player and/or coach, you may find this book to be a difficult read.

As with all football coaching books, you shouldn't expect to be able to take the book and implement all of its concepts directly into your offensive arsenal. The idea with these kind of resources it that you take a couple of ideas from the book that you can use to enhance teaching in your own program. In that respect, I highly recommend this book.

The book takes a complicated offensive scheme and does it's best to simplify it in a way that makes sense to the reader. The diagrams were extremely helpful and MOST were accurate. I will likely add this resource to the list of "repeat reads" that I use for the purposes of becoming a better coach.

Unfortunately, we reader's aren't in the classroom with Coach Gonzalez. The reader is left to sort it all out for himself. If you are a seasoned coach looking to install an offense, and are willing to put the time in to study and decipher this book, then it looks like a pretty good scheme. If you are a non-coach, looking to expand your knowledge of the inner workings and strategies of the game, this is a waste of time.
