Giants new head coach Joe Judge stood at a lectern inside a MetLife Stadium club during his introductory press conference and insisted that special teams coaches are well-suited for the top job. Somewhere, Mike Ditka nodded.

While many head-coaching jobs go to offensive and defensive coordinators -- often the highly publicized brains of the game plans that drive teams to the postseason and Super Bowl championships -- special teams coaches are no longer the guys who are working their way up the coaching food chain. In todayís NFL, they can be just as valuable as anyone on the staff.

Ditka understands this. While he is best known for leading the 1985 Chicago Bears to a Super Bowl championship, Ditka was a special teams coach under Tom Landry with the Dallas Cowboys from 1973-81. He says there might not be better training for becoming a head coach.

Itís 1/3 of the sport and you have to know the entire team - not just offense or defense.
Man I would hate it if Joe Judge flipped me off

FWIW Jim Fasell's son has been a hell of a SP teams coordinator

in recent years. Hell it seems like yesterday he was the kid behind Jim on the sideline doing whatever duties, but Im dating myself.

Been watching him as an aside since he's gotten his coaching gig, but just now saw that he left the Rams for a position with the Cowboys.

"Bones" as he is known because of his ultra marathon build perhaps bears watching in the future given the OP title.

And he fucked up royally and is now not with the Rams anymore. He called a fake punt, apparently without McVay's approval, deep in his own territory and it failed.
