By Randy Maltz – Founder/Editor Silver and Blue Report & Hook ’em Report

Dallas Cowboys Stadium | Dallas Cowboys: Jerry JonesFrom Wikipedia: Monte Kiffin (born February 29, 1940) is the defensive coordinator of the Dallas Cowboys. He is widely considered to be one of the preeminent defensive coordinators in modern football, as well as one of the greatest defensive coordinators in NFL history.
Father of the widely imitated “Tampa Cover 2” defense, Kiffin’s concepts are among the most influential in modern college and pro football.  Monte Kiffin is the mastermind behind the Tampa 2 scheme, which is a slight modification of Tony Dungy’s Cover 2. His defensive philosophy has several hallmarks:  Speed over size and strength, Preventing scores over preventing yardage, Multiple defenses from one look, and Attacking and causing turnovers
