Avezzano is the only three-time winner of the NFL Special Teams Coach of the Year award. His units finished near the top of league in all four major kicking game categories–punt return average, kickoff return average, punt coverage and kickoff coverage–while having a penchant for making big plays. They blocked 23 kicks and returned 18 punts and kickoffs for touchdowns. Sure, having PrimeTime helped, but Coach Joe was energetic and motivated the special teams to perform. I loved his spark.
If Jerry Jones really is going to make “major changes” then this could be added to the pot. He isn’t coaching right now, and his last job was with Norv Turner in Oakland in 2005. I think he would be a great addition to the coaching staff.
