More than 60 coaches will take part in the 2018 NFL Coaching Clinic June 15-17 at The Star in Frisco, Texas. The program emphasizes coaching fundamentals and communications with players.
Attendees will take part in interactive sessions, including panel discussions and on-field demonstrations. A group of successful current and former coaches will lead the sessions. This year’s faculty includes Dave Wannstedt, Jim Skipper, Bobby April, Tony Sorrentino, Larry Marmie, Mike Pope, Larry Kirksey, Aeneas Williams and Jimmy Raye.
“The NFL Coaching Clinic presents the opportunity for a peer-to-peer transfer of knowledge, technique and expertise among the best coaches,” said Troy Vincent, NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations. “Handing off the very best practices from one coaching generation to the next ensures the long term viability and sustainability of the game.”
Participants will learn the fundamentals and mechanics of coaching at different positions. This year’s clinic focuses on the running back, wide receiver, tight end, defensive back, and special teams positions.
Past clinic attendance was limited to NFL coaches with one-to-three years of experience. But this year’s program was expanded to include select participants from the NFL’s pipeline diversity programming and high school football coaches.
