Coordinators Calling. A-J Media’s Don Williams writes about how he helps manage the game, whether to punt or go for it, saying that it is his responsibility, while offensive coordinator David Yost and defensive coordinator Keith Patterson call the actual offensive and defensive plays:

β€œI’m on both headsets,” Wells said. β€œI’m making a decent amount of calls in terms of the kicking game with coach Tommerdahl. I help coach Yost in terms of going for it, punting, kicking field goals, all that kind of stuff.

β€œYou just manage the game from a head-coaching situation: time management, your timeouts, substitutions, special-teams substitutions, special-teams adjustments, a handful of offensive adjustments, looking at what they do on offense to help the defense in any way I can.”

Miscellaneous . . .
