University of Albany CAA Football - Friday Football - UAlbany Sports 2017

ALBANY, N.Y. – Joe knows defense. That means he also knows the flip side of the coin -- offense. University at Albany assistant head coach Joe Bernard believes coaching for so long on the defensive side of the ball made it much easier to switch his focus as the Great Danes’ offensive coordinator and running backs coach.

 “It gives you a good perspective being a defensive coordinator all of those years and dissecting the offense,” Bernard said. “Knowing what teams do defensively, and being on that side of the ball for so long, gives you a pretty good perspective on how to play against most defenses. I’ve used most of those defensive schemes myself over the years.”
