there's an argument to be made for "perfecting" the fundamentals, and drilling those home with basic drills until they are automatic, but at the same time, great coaches know how use variety to achieve that same goal, whereas dogmatic coaches lacking creativity simply stick to what they know without themselves striving to find innovative ways to deliver it.
I'm a bit surprised that RC, as a new and younger coach, isn't more ambitious in his approach (assuming that the article is accurate), especially given his integration of modern technology as a teaching tool...
I wonder if, to a degree, he's "holding back", given his mid-season appointment, rationalizing that it's better to "stay the course" and stick with what the players are familiar with as opposed to radically putting his own stamp on the teams training practices...
