It also has roles for the tweener OLB/S types this team has as well. I suggested it a while back and it makes a lot more sense than a traditional 3-4, even a nickel look, because this team just isn't big enough to run it. It actually fits OU's personnel, it provides the same ability to disguise pressure a 3-4 does, it gets more safety type athletes on the field and does not require the jumbo athletes OU lacks. It shares an issue with the 3-4 in terms of who is going to coach it though. The odd stack is fairly complex and no one on the staff currently has any experience with it. the real fathers of it aren't options. Dunn is 66 and obviously Strong has a pretty good gig. There are plenty of guys out there who have coached it at places like BYU, WVU, BSU, TU, ULM, etc. I don't pretend to know if any would even be looked at by OU even if they decided to scrap the TE/FB job for an extra defensive coach.
