What is your guys opinion on the staff approach to coach the unit by committee?
Always been a strength in the past, will the fact of not having a particular staff member coaching the unit hurt the overall production?

I was thinking about this too but I'm not sure what type of effect it will have, if any, on our special teams production.
It could actually help. Having a coach assigned to each piece of ST will allow more time to work each ind. piece. When they have the ST period in practice each coach can dedicate to a specific piece while WM for example can survey the big picture. Instead of shorter times for each while fitting them into the same ST period. Not exactly sure how it will work but it has been done every way and by many coaches and it all works if the coaching is right. I am not worried at all based on the knowledge of this staff and the tenure of these guys.
I'd like to see the plan before deciding what I think....but with different people being assigned to different aspects, I think there will be more accountability.
"You're not a good guy, you go somewhere else. We'll play you. We'll beat you."
Well it's not like they are spreading it all out. It's more one coach gets a certain area. One guy gets FGs and EXtda pts another punt blocks and returns and so on. Plus it's not like we are losing our STs coach, he can still see what's going on and whose need help.
In reality, ST coaching is always done by committee, with one coach getting a glorified title of STC. Ex Coach A workswith kick coverages and tackling techniques, Coach B works with the return units (blocking), Coach C orchestrates the FG team, Graduate Assistant works with the punters, etc.
Still don't think Young returns...
Got the same feeling. Think as soon as the ink dries on NSD we will hear about him going to Seattle or something.

VirginiaGator is 100 percent correct. On most staffs, special teams is divided among the coaches because there are so many different parts and in college, unlike the NFL< the special teams coach is usually a position coach on either side of the ball. Muschamp knows how important special teams are, how vital they were to the team's success last season, so I doubt there will be any dropoff in focus from the staff in that area.
This, I thought Meyer was a special teams ace until Muschamp got here and made Durkin do our even better. We blocked more kicks in Boom's first 2 years than Meyer, iirc.

Notice Lawing wasn't called DE coach...
We now have a DL coach and a DT coach. Little redundant...
ST coach is mostly a title except for film study. Most that the ST coach does is look at film of other teams to find weaknesses. Coaches work the techniques for different stuff.
Now that we don't have an ST coach we're going to take away from what Durkin did last year? Muschamp sure sung Durkin's praises for a position that was divided among the various coaches.
I have trouble believing that.
