Mississippi State football fans will keep their eyes on the special teams, especially the place kicking, when the Bulldogs return to the practice fields in the fall.
Last season saw the Bulldogs struggle in nearly every aspect of special teams from punting, punt coverage, punt returns, kickoff returns, kickoff coverage and kicking field goals.
This spring didn't help ease fans' minds, but there was some promise shown. For the first time in head coach Dan Mullen's six-year tenure at MSU, someone other than him has the title of special teams coordinator.
That falls to Greg Knox, who also coaches running backs. Other coaches on the staff have their hand on a certain aspect of special teams, but Knox wears the title.
"Well, I am up here a lot," Knox said laughing. "I spend a lot of time doing it and it takes time."
