Browns Hire New Special Teams Coach

Unread postby swerb » Tue Jan 30, 2007 10:10 pm

Really sucked to lose Rosburg, who did a helluva job with the ST the last three seasons. Daisher inherits a great returner in Cribbs, one of the leagues best punters in Zastudil, and a pretty reliable in kicker in Dawson ... despite his struggles late in the year.


Daisher named special teams coordinator

The Browns have named Ted Daisher as special teams coordinator, the club announced Tuesday.

Daisher spent 2006 as special teams coordinator of the Oakland Raiders and the previous two seasons as the Philadelphia Eagles special teams quality control coach from 2004-05.

Daisher, 52, spent 22 seasons as an assistant coach in the college ranks, including stints at East Carolina (2001-02, outside linebackers and defensive ends), Indiana (1998-2000, defensive line), Army (1995-97, defensive line), Cincinnati (1989-92, defensive line), Eastern Michigan (1985-88, defensive ends), Northern Illinois (1980-84), and Illinois (1979).

Both Northern Illinois and Eastern Michigan won Mid-American Conference championships while he was on the staff of the respective institutions. Daisher coached future NFL players Vaughn Booker and Ronnie Dixon at Cincinnati, and Pro Bowl DE Adewale Ogunleye (Chicago) and Kemp Rasmussen (Seattle) at Indiana.

In 2003, he served as head coach at East Mecklenberg (N.C.) High School and led them to a 7-4 regular season record and a playoff berth. He also served as head coach at Fenwick (Ill.) High School from 1993-94. Daisher spent the 1978 football season coaching receivers and defensive backs at Kalamazoo (Mich.) Christian High School.

Losing Rosburg was not a big deal to me.

Cribbs is good because he runs straight ahead and fast. The kick returners prior to Cribbs weren't that big of a deal.

Zastudil is good, because Zastudil is good. The 2 guys before him (under Rosburg) sucked.

Northcutt is good when he tries, most of the time he doesn't.

The only thing I am concerned with is the coverage teams. They always seemed to perform for the most part.

Dawson = incredibly average
