Mark Stoops-Family Roots Helped Build His Defense

Here is a good chance to learn a little bit more about Mark Stoops' background and what he brings to the Noles. Here are a couple of quotes I found interesting from the story. "The core of our defense is from my family, and then we always are off and running, tweaking things and building it as we go," Mark Stoops said. "You'll see some outstanding defense," Coker said. "He's going to get guys lined up properly. They're going to play hard. He's gap-sound. He's going to make sure that all the gaps are covered. He's going to be in a position to disguise coverages and bring more players than you can block. That's what is going on with defenses right now." "I think we get sacks and things like that from covering people and making the quarterback eat it a little bit as opposed to a whole lot of blitzing and getting some pressure that way," Stoops said. "We want to cover people, be very sound, be very precise in our run defense, and take our shots when we can get after the quarterback." Also, here is a short video of Stoops discussing his upbringing, what he told the players when he took the job, and what we can expect from his defense this season.
