James Spady brings the pistol offense to Alabama A&M, but is still banking on winning with defense.
The Bulldogs have been much more adept on that side of the ball, anyway. A&M's new coach says the offense will aim to set the defense up for success.
Spady, a former Grambling State offensive coordinator, replaced longtime coach Anthony Jones after serving as tight ends and co-offensive line coach at Nevada from 2010-13. He learned the pistol offense from now-retired Nevada coach Chris Ault.
It presents Southwestern Athletic Conference defenses with a different look. The Bulldogs were ninth in the SWAC in scoring last season, averaging just 16.4 points a game. They led the league in total defense.
Alabama A&M is trying to rebound from a 4-8 season.
