What is the Tite Front?

This video helps football coaches control the line of scrimmage and shut down the kinds of plays you'll see in the run game from all the most popular versions of the spread offense, including the zone read. Not only that, but you'll have plenty of ways to combat the gap schemes that include the pulling guard and double teams that traditionally give tite front defenses so much trouble.

Essentially the Tite Front allows your defensive linemen to be more effective against the spread run game so many offenses are playing this week, by lining both ends up in a 4i technique. The nose tackle is head up on the center in the standard Tite front, and the gap defenders in the B-gap to either side are the two defensive linemen in a 4i technique. This makes it easier for the inside linebackers to run free and for the overhang defender to play more aggressively, knowing that the interior of the defense is taken care of.

This scheme is taking over football at every level, including college football. The Tite front was popularized by Baylor Head Coach Dave Aranda when he was the defensive coordinator at Wisconsin and LSU, and now everyone has some form of Tite front in their scheme, including Nick Saban and Kirby Smart, not to mention the incredible defense at Iowa State.
