Success rate is the rate at which plays yield a positive expected points added. We can use this to show the benefits of throwing the ball relative to running. The average pass play yields an EPA of 0.07 while a running play on average results in an EPA of -0.04.
After spending more than two decades in the college ranks as an assistant coach, Sean Spencer is bringing his high-energy approach to the New York Giants.
