The No-Huddle Study

New Research Discovers How No-Huddle Programs Get More Snaps, Get More Yards and Score More Points.

By Sam Nichols, Managing Editor, X&O Labs

It was clear last spring when X&O Labs toured the greater part of college campuses in the Northeast that the no-huddle system was cornering its mark on the game.  Of the 14 schools we visited (which included the Naval Academy and Rutgers University) 12 of them were implementing the no-huddle system in some capacity.  Some were even going wholesale to the system for the first time last Spring (it was truly exciting) and we’re expecting many more will be doing the same thing this year.  Which is why we wanted to present our readers with the most thorough research ever conducted on the no-huddle offensive system.

The special report below was divided into six total cases and was the result of extensive research, which started with a survey that was responded to by close to 1,000 coaches at all levels.  That’s more coaches than any other survey we had distributed prior.  So our staff hit the ground running on this one and thankfully we’ve had hundreds of coaches that were graceful enough to share their information.  What you will see below is a culmination of a six-case research study, which includes, but is not limited to, all of the following components:

Case 1: No-Huddle System Philosophy and Organizational Systems:

You’ll learn various advantages that No-Huddle teams have found and breakdown the Communication Systems including:

  • If you utilize the no-huddle, or you are considering the no-huddle, you must read X&O Labs’ massive special report: The No-Huddle Study. This research report is the most comprehensive study on the no-huddle ever conducted!

    The specific factors why coaches decided to switch to the no-huddle system.

  • Why it is a fact that coaches that use the no-huddle score more points than teams that do huddle.
  • Why 75% of the coaches polled saw an increase of at least 11 plays per game due to adding the no-huddle.  This is an increase of roughly 15% over the average high school team.
  • Even more impressively, 30% of coaches saw their plays per game increase by 20 or more plays per game (a 30% increase over the average).
  • Why over 90% or respondents saw increased yardage that surpassed 50 yards per game and 51% had gains of over 100 yards per game.
