  • Saban hires the "kicking whisperer"

    https://www.saturdaydownsouth.com/al...ing-whisperer/

    As first reported by Bruce Feldman of The Athletic, Iowa State’s Joe Houston and Virginia Tech’s Jonathan Galante are both being hired by Alabama to serve as quality control special team staffers.

    It should please Alabama fans to know Houston comes with a reputation as a “kicking whisperer” in Aimes. The former Iowa State special teams coordinator was a kicker at USC. Following the end of his playing career, Houston served as a low-level assistant at El Camino Community College before landing at Toledo. During his time at Iowa State, he turned inconsistent kickers into All-Big 12 performers.

    Galante previously served as a graduate assistant of special teams at Virginia Tech, helping a program known for its outstanding special teams play.

    A few sugar cubes can work wonders.

      Need to hire a priest. Our kicking game needs an exorcism, not a whisperer

                Didn't we just hire supposedly the best special teams coach in the country last season? If anything he made them worse than Bobby Williams. I think Bama is just snakebitten when it comes to the special teams.

                  If I understand it correctly, most special teams coaches at big programs don't really teach kicking. They all(the kickers) have camps and private kicking coaches they go to. Banks was supposedly more of a return game guru, but we didn't do that well in that regard last year either. Our coverage was fairly decent. He was one of two(?) coaches Saban kept around?

                    Pretty sure that's to recruit Houston. Somehow Banks was named Special Teams Coach of the Year.
