Frost: Dawson done “great job” with special teams- may not hire a dedicated ST Coordinator

Just because Riley had a Special Teams coach who was at practice for 30 minutes and then left, doesn't take away from the value of a special teams coach.

Attempt to dismiss the point all you like.

We need a special teams coach, period.  Complain about Mr. Fo-Fiddy all you like but his teams were mid 30's nationally in ST efficiency.  We are 128th right now.  Not even TheSker can defend that with a straight face.

Frost was brought back so he ended his leave of absence from the board to tell us all how close we continue to be with the right side of the offensive line.  They should be really good in year 2.

I'm not in charge of defending anything.

This brings up perhaps a more important point:

Are there any stats that teams with a dedicated ST coach do better at ST than teams without a dedicated ST coach? In other words, what's the actual value of a special teams coach?

Sad when the previous staff had nicknames like 450 and Mr .500.......And still had a better record.  Here’s hoping to change brings improvement. 

Absolutely.

 

Like I've said many times, Frost has many helping him try to succeed including the hiring of Alberts.

I have never seen stats to compare the 2 philosophies. However, if I were Frost and have seen how abysmal the Special Teams have been under his watch, I would seriously think about a dedicated Special Teams coach who can have contact with players during the game.

This is a hilarious stat.

How many wins would that translate to this season? We'd probably be like 8-2 right now with Bruce Read on the staff.

All I know is there was a guy from K State who had top 10 ST squads who went to USC and had a top 5 unit in his first year that probably will be available.  He even wanted to work here at one point.  I think we should hire that guy.

Sean is good.

 

And Frost might go a route like that.....I have no idea.....it's just not an "obvious" decision.

We might be that if Martinez doesn't fumble or throw half a seasons INTs in one game too.

 

There's more than one hilarious stat.
