Joe Osovet Offensive football coach | Tennessee volunteers

Joe Osovet, the Babylon, NY native and son of a carpet salesman, is one of the top offensive minds in the game of football. The offensive production from his #BoltOffense is stuff of legends at the JUCO level in the Northeast. He is also one of the top recruiting and development coaches in college football sending 24 players to Division 1 schools in 2017 alone!

Joe grinded for his opportunity to get his foot in the Power 5 door. Now that he's in, the sky is the limit!

#BoltOffense - RPO Innovator

“In 2001, we started to do it. We didn’t call it an RPO. We called it a Secondary Manipulation. The basic concept and how we stumbled upon it was we wanted to be in 10 personnel [one running back, four wide receivers]. We always had undersized slot receivers, and there was a physical mismatch between our slots who were like 5'8" or 5'9" and the overhang linebackers who were like 6'1" or 6'2". Our slots were dynamic with the ball in their hands, but if we ran the football they’d have to block these linebackers. We were at a physical disadvantage. So we thought, if they fall into the box [to defend the run], why not throw the stick [over the middle to an inside receiver]?”

"Tennessee made a bold move this offseason luring Joe Osovet, one of the nation’s best junior college coaches, to Knoxville to help the offensive staff. Known as an innovator of RPOs and explosive downfield passing, Osovet’s hire showed the Vols were fully committed to building up a support staff that similar to Alabama’s." -Michael Wayne Bratton, Saturday Down South
