I'm grateful I came across the Defensive Coordinator Workbook. It's been an invaluable resource for me. I'm in my first year as a DC since the Fall of 2011. The Defensive Coordinator Workbook has allowed me the chance to formulate notes and thoughts that would've otherwise been just sheets of looseleaf paper. Thank you! I'm sure I'll be using this resource for years to come.
