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.

More About the Author

Dan Gonzalez has long been considered a great teacher of the passing game. His career began 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 moving to Abilene Christian University from 1996 to 1997 as the QB coach. Returning to Ranger as offensive coordinator from 1998 to 1999, he produced all-conference selections at quarterback and wide receiver. Gonzalez then spent two seasons as the offensive coordinator at North Lamar High School in Paris, Texas. Making the switch from a wishbone offense to a multifaceted passing attack, North Lamar High School enjoyed back-to-back winning seasons for the first time in 20 years. Along the way, the team produced all-league selections at quarterback, wide receiver, and tight end. Moreover, his quarterback, a converted safety, emerged as the 18th-ranked prospect in the nation. 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. During his first season at Lenoir-Rhyne University, the team's quarterback led the South Atlantic Conference in passing and set single-season school records for most yards, touchdowns, and completions. Three different quarterbacks in three seasons each netted top 10 passing seasons in the school's record books, including the second- and fourth-best receiving careers in school history. He then returned to ACU, bringing his former North Lamar QB with him, who went on to pass for more than 12000 yards in his college career. Gonzalez graduated from The University of Texas at Austin with a bachelor of science in Kinesiology and a minor in Psychology. He played football for four years and lettered as a wide receiver on the 1994 Southwest Conference championship team, and received recognition for his academic efforts, including the NCAA Student Athlete Award in 1994. Gonzalez played high school football at Paris High School (Paris, TX) and was part of the Wildcats' 1988 Class 4A state championship team. Gonzalez and his wife, Lori, reside in the Dallas suburb of Allen, Texas with their three children. 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.

This book must be added to your library. The terminology is great and the author does a outstanding job of describing routes, reads, and concepts. Buy this book, read it, then read it again to fully understand it!

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.
