On today’s Coach and Coordinator Podcast, host Keith Grabowski is joined by University of Georgia special teams coordinator Scott Fountain. This past season the Bulldogs ranked first in the SEC in punt return yards (366) and punt return average (16.6, seventh nationally) and tied for first in punt return touchdowns (2). During multiple stints as a special teams coordinator, Fountain has been known for his ability to develop excellent returners in both the punt return and kickoff return game. Fountain joins Coach and Coordinator today to talk about how he teaches different special teams positions during camp as well as how he chooses and develops return men.
