VEER

What is VEER?

VEER meaning two-back, triple-option offense invented by University of Houston coach Bill Yeoman; the quick receivers are typically aligned in a pro set; the halfbacks are typically aligned behind the guards or tackles at about four yards depth; the lack of a third back in the backfield prevents this offense from running the wishbone-type lead triple-option play; however, unlike the wishbone, which has two quick receivers, the veer has three quick receivers; the word “veer” is also used to mean a split-back formation regardless of whether the team in question runs the option play
