Hired to replace Scott Campbell in April, new Clyde coach Danny Dudgeon has been hard at work since laying the foundation for his program.
Coming over from Cooper, where he had previously served as Aaron Roan’s offensive coordinator, the first-time head coach has made setting the culture priority one.
For Dudgeon, who also worked under Keith Woolf, Steve Freeman and Todd Moebes, X’s and O’s and schemes are important. But nothing’s more vital to the success of a program than establishing a shared set of values and expectations that will guide it through good times and out of the bad.
For Bulldogs fans wondering what those values and expectations might look like, a quick peak to the west will provide a pretty good glimpse. After seeing firsthand the impact a positive culture built around a family atmosphere can have at Cooper, Dudgeon plans to bring those same aspects with him to Clyde.
