Chris Klewe on kick coaching

Sound familiar?
Want to know why your team has a shitty kicker? Because your team has a shitty coach who doesn't know the first thing about the basic fundamentals of kicking and punting, but figures that a soccer castoff will do just fine so long as he gets screamed at loudly enough.
His solution is simple (and one y'all have been trying to employ for some time):
If you want your team to stop trotting out Shanky McWideleft, then you need to get on the coaching staff's collective asses and force them to actually learn the fundamentals of kicking, and not just regard the special teams coordinator as the bottom rung on the ladder toward head coach. 
Or actually get a special teams coordinator.

I would wager that most special teams coaches don't know jack About proper form for kickers.

Why not have kind of a permanent grad assistant role for former kickers to rotate in and out of after they get done. Invite locals such as Billy Bennett, Gordon Ely Kelso, John Kasay, among others to hang around, and offer advice or a knowledgable ear?

That a hell of an idea.
