Part 4: Why Coach Zauner

So, as a Coach or a Player, why should you consider coming to one of my One on One Coaching Clinics? After all, there are a lot of individuals who are in business as 'Kicking Coaches'.

In part four of this five part video series, I share a bit about my background with you.

First of all, Kicking is my passion. And it has been for as long as I can remember. I received my Bachelor and Masters Degrees in Education. During that time I did several studies, papers and video’s on The Art of Kicking. I was a kicker / punter at the University of Wisconsin LaCrosse and signed free agent contracts with the Minnesota Vikings and Houston Oilers.

I’ve Coached Kickers for Over 35 Years in High School, College and the NFL and I am currently Consulting some of the Top NFL, College and High School Talent

During my 13 Year NFL Career with the Vikings, Ravens and Cardinals (working with Dennis Green & Brian Billick).

I’ve worked with kickers who have set a number of NFL Records including 31 Straight field goals with Fuad Reveiz, a perfect season with Gary Anderson and an NFL Record 40 touch backs with punter / kickoff specialist Mitch Berger.

Also, in 2002 we set an NFL 107 yard Field Goal Return Record with the Baltimore Ravens.

In my NFL and Consulting Career I’ve coached or trained 19 Pro Bowl Kickers and Punters or kicking specialists. And, as a Kicking Consultant I’ve been hired by some of the all time great NFL coaches including, Dick Vermeil, Mike Ditka, Marty Schottenheimer, Dan Reeves, George Seifert and Tom Flores.


These all time great and Hall of Fame Football Coaches realized it was O.K. to hire an 'outside' Kicking Consultant to help coach their kicking specialists and Special Teams Coaches.

My expertise in coaching kicking specialists produced results for every NFL team I've coached or every NFL team I consulted with.

During my 11 Years as a college Special Teams Coach, I worked for two of the all time great coaches, LaVell Edwards & George Allen. George Allen is now in the NFL Hall of Fame

I also have the honor of being the 1st Full Time Special Teams Coach in NCAA History. Hired by Doug Scovil at San Diego State in 1980.

In my coaching career at Brigham Young University, San Diego State University, University of New Mexico, and at Long Beach State University, I had the privilege during my college coaching career of not only recruiting but also coaching nine (9) all conference and five (5) 1st Team or Honorable Mention All American Kickers and Punters.

I hope you'll take a few minutes to watch this video. If you do, I think you see that considering my experience and success as a Kicking Coach, I can help you take your Kicking Game to the next level.
