NCAA Football: Military Bowl-Virginia vs Navy Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

The longest tenured coach in the conference stops by to chat with Collin Sherwin and Nathan Bond during AAC Media days.

In an interesting opportunity, the guys interview Coach Ken from Navy about coaching the triple option, how teams can exploit or defend it, and what collegiate offenses are doing today.

The guys also talk about the uniqueness of recruiting at the Naval Academy, the sheer numbers of each class, how it’s different from other D1 programs and the advantages and disadvantages of that.

Coach Ken also opens up about other coaching opportunities and that even though his name has been floated around he hasn’t left the Naval Academy.

This is an interesting listen from the coach of one of college football’s most iconic programs and gives a little insight into a unique system.
