A Research Company for Football Coaches
X&O Labs’ Insiders, an exclusive membership-based website, delivers you in-depth reports on the trends, schemes, strategies and drills that are proven to maximize offensive, defensive and special teams production.
Over 8,000 coaches from the NFL, college and high school levels use the Insiders (a membership-based website) every week to improve their programs – and their careers.
X&O Labs’ Insiders releases over 200 new clinic reports, research reports, drill reports and special reports every year. And these are not just any reports, either. The Insiders’ reports feature specific topics and dig deeper than the general overview you find in other coaching resources – and that includes coaching clinics.
Where other coaching resources tell you “what coaches do”, X&O Labs’ Insiders reports go further and tell you the “why” behind the concept. With each report, you’ll get specifics like detailed coaching points, alignments, reads, installation steps, downloads -- everything you need to increase the production of your offense, defense or special teams.
Plus, these reports provide multiple coaches’ perspectives at solving the same problems and issues you face every day.
“The video within X&O Labs’ Insiders reports allow me to see inside the minds of great coaches and concepts.”

But what makes X&O Labs’ Insiders reports truly powerful is the use of game film and tutorial video. As you read a report, you can now watch videos to see the concept or drill in real-game situations. This significantly increases your ability to bring these concepts back to your program.
Plus, only with X&O Labs’ Insiders reports will you get the opportunity to network with the coaches featured in these reports. It’s a great opportunity to further your career.
If you’re not an Insiders member, you’re missing out and falling behind those coaches who’ve already joined.
