Coaching 101: Tampa 2

Posted September 9, 2013

Former East Carolina and NFL coach Steve Logan breaks down what the Tampa 2 and Cover 2 are in the first installment of his Coaching 101 series. 

Coaching 101: Tampa 2 Coaching 101: Tampa 2

The Tampa 2 is a defensive strategy named after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and first used by then head coach Tony Dungy. The Tampa 2 starts with a 4-3 defense, four linemen, three linebackers, two cornerbacks, and two safeties. The defense was derived from a Cover 2 defense, except the middle linebacker drops into a deep middle coverage. It is typically used on third down and 7 or 8 yards when the offense is looking to pass. 

Check back every Monday for more X's and O's.

    I always enjoy listening to Coach Logan and KT is right. It's nice to see something other than rating teams and coaches.

    Logan does a terrific job explaining the X's and O's of football, and he can break it down into simple terms - the sign of a good teacher.

    I'd much rather Logan be writing columns and posting videos than that Tudor guy. What a homer.
