2012 Offensive Line Coaches Handbook: Featuring Lectures From the 2012 C.O.O.L. Clinic
Featuring presentations made by several of America s most outstanding coaches, including Paul Alexander, Mike Bloomgren, Dan Dorazio, Pat Flaherty, Jim McNally, Dante Scarnecchia, Mike Solari, Bob Wylie, and George Yarno. The concept of a clinic geared specifically toward addressing the needs and interests of offensive linemen came to fruition in 1982, when a group of about 18 coaches met with Jim McNally, an assistant coach with the NFL s Cincinnati Bengals at the time, in the Bengals training facility. Coaches enjoyed this clinic and it an annual event. Traditionally, the C.O.O.L. Clinic has been held the third week in May each year to accommodate the large number of college coaches who incorporate this event into their spring schedule.
