Does it matter if USC has a special teams coach?
A lot was made of Sean Snyder coming from Kansas State a couple years ago but did it make a huge difference? John Baxter was a disaster, of course.
Lincoln Riley has never believed in having a special teams coach. Will it matter? It depends how competent the staff is? In the spring game, it was obvious the punting was substandard. We won’t know until the season how the kickoff/kick return, etc. perform.
It’s actually going to be important because USC should have some close games and special teams could be the difference . . . good and bad.
- San Diego State have officially added Kenan Christon to the roster.
