Who's Behind The Spread Offense?

Hey Spread Offense Enthusiasts! My name is Coach Alex Besaw and I am the creator of "The Spread Offense".  I was born and raised in the Spread Offense as a native to Eugene, Oregon (Go Ducks!) but I currently live in Salinas, CA with my wife Gabriella and our two boys, Elijah and Mason.

I have always been around the game of football and have loved the Spread Offense since I was a little kid.  I played QB in the Spread Offense in High School, but chose to pursue baseball in college as a pitcher. I was drafted by the Tampa Bay Rays in 2009, but I turned it down to pitch for UCF.  My career came to an end at UCF when I tore up my throwing shoulder and could no longer throw.

I knew I wanted to get into coaching after graduating from UCF.  I began coaching football and I have been a QB coach and Offensive Coordinator in Salinas for the past 8 years.

When I first started coaching in Salinas, before I became OC, my head coach was playing 10 vs 10 in the box with a lonely WR who was thrown to maybe 3 times a game. My suggestions of putting the QB in shotgun, or even splitting out a few WR's to empty out the box was not well received.

After a few years I was named OC and I was given the freedom to install my style of the spread offense.  The following three years we averaged 35 points a game, had 2 QB's named league MVP's after breaking the schools previous passing and rushing records, became league champions for the first time in 14 years, and were runner ups in CCS Finals in 2014.

I've created "The Spread Offense" as a resource for coaches of all backgrounds who would like to learn more about the best offense in football—the Spread Offense.
