Alex Gibbs Abruptly Retires as Seahawks OL Coach

So Alex Gibbs retired abruptly as the Seahawks OL coach. Amongst the speculation I saw about why he retired I saw this comment:

"Gibbs is fleeing because recent rule changes are making his zone blocking scheme impossible to run. So rather than sticking it out or adapting he is leaving with his reputation intact. He is a zone blocking genius but also a one trick pony."

Does anyone know what rule changes he might be talking about? Is this the new restrictions on crack back blocking or what?
