Has also spent time coaching with Marshall, former collegiate kicker/punter with some incredible hair game

I'm digging the technology here!

But how is his Mullet Game?

I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:
“I served in the United States Navy"

His twitter back and forth with Shayne Graham was pretty funny!

Welcome to the team coach.

A PART
NOT APART

Having vented that well come a board, Brett! Stoked to get a little help there!

he didn't come here to coach school

You dont know that, maybe proper grammar while talking shit is his thing, kickers are wierd like that.

Immediately thought of this

How does he feel about icing a college kicker on a potential 59 year old game winning field goal?

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

You will see this game, this upset and this sign next on ESPN Sportscenter. Virginia Tech 31 Miami 7

Better, but still broken.

Given the number of upvotes here, I'm concerned Virginia Tech is developing too many brilliant engineers who can't read or write.

Real important question is how are his tackling skills and teaching of said skills? Kickers should also moonlight as LB's some say...

Punters too.

Here's a novel idea Brett! Find someone who can catch and return punts other than a MF tight end.

Beat me to it. That should be his first assignment.

"That's it guys. Let's get out of here. That cold drink's waitin' on us, let's go." - Mike Young after win no. 300.

Great idea- find a punt returner!! maybe instead of hitting golf balls from the stands in Lane, we have 'cruits try to catch punts from a punter hitting a spiral from the upper deck down to 'cruits down on the field!! Maybe we can find a winner!!

With a name like that, he should probably be working with these guys

Family resemblance?

Wait a minute. We have an overpaid special teams coach so we need to hire him an assistant? Is this a new position or filling a vacancy?

Considering Saban tried to poach Shibest along with Wiggins, I think the general market doesn't believe he's "overpaid".

Shibest is also the TE coach. I believe that is where most of his value comes from, especially with this offense. Perhaps an Asst ST Coach allows him to focus more on the TEs without ST being neglected.

I like to focus on tight ends too.
