USC does not have a dedicated special teams coach.
Some teams do. Some don’t.
Lincoln Riley doesn’t believe in it. If you have good kickers, that part takes care of itself. The coaches make their mark the kickoff teams, punt teams, etc. That’s where John Baxter tended to self-destruct.
It’s too early to say how Riley’s approach will work. We’ll see over time.
But I will mention again I don’t like Jordan Addison returning punts. USC has too many talented receivers and running backs who can return punts. It doesn’t need to put its star receiver at risk.
Pete Carroll famously had Greig Carlson return punts. Carroll just wanted someone to catch the ball and not fumble it. That’s priority No. 1.
I’d even prefer Travis Dye returning punts. He’s a tough back, he’s reliable. He’s smart. And if he gets hurt, USC still has some other tailbacks.
