Pat's co-host is former USC and Chicago Bears Defensive Linemen Tim Ryan
I was a little nervous this morning, knowing that at 4:00 p.m. ET, I was going on Sirius NFL Radio with Pat Kirwan and Tim Ryan who feature, "Moving the Chains!"
As soon as I start talking kicking and special teams all my nervousness went away. I was in my comfort zone. It was a lot of fun!
Pat and Tim asked the questions and I rolled on! We talked about the NFL Combine and the process of finding punters and kickers for the up coming draft! Rather than me explaining, all the details, click here to listen to today's segement of Sirius NFL Radio. The topic was talking kicking with Coach Zauner.....
Tuesday was another busy day returning phone calls and organizing the rest of my week.
I have Ryan Weigand the punter from the University of Virginia coming to town for lessons on Wed. and Thursday. Toledo's punter Brett Kern arrives on Friday for a weekend session. In the NCAA Stats, both punters seem to have big legs. Ryan averaged 45.2 yards and Brett averaged 46.1 yards per punt. Can't wait to see some big hang times.
In the afternoon I talked to Wisconsin's Head Football Coach Bret Bielema about some special teams and kicking. Coach Bielema is very unique because he is in charge of his special teams units. I know one thing, that when he talks, all the players will be listening. "I love his concept!" Way to go Coach Bielema! If more head coaches would get involved in their teams kicking game practices, their special teams units would probably perform better on game day!
To top off the day, two NFL teams called inquiring about my consulting services.
It was a great day! Hope everything keeps moving in a positive direction. My dad always told me, that hard work pays off. It seems to be paying dividends.
