It looking like Special Teams coach Mike Ekeler is headed to Tennessee to coach special teams sources confirm

If I’m In Knoxville I’m not thrilled with that hire.

was never impressed with his Special Teams play and I never understood why Griffin-Hair was not returning kickoffs.  Hopefully we find someone good.

Yeah but he was a good recruiter.

How many punt and kickoffs were returned for TD's against us?   Should have never chased Perry away.  Ekler never planned to stay here.  I never said he couldn't recruit.

Deion had a nagging shoulder injury. That may be why he didn’t .

Do you even know where he is now?

Not a chance.

Money talks and we are closer to east Texas than nUTSAck. He can’t be making much over $100k. The $150k Ek was making would probably be a nice raise.

He left shortly after SL arrived.  Either fired or they didn't get along.  Not gonna happen

You are correct. Littrell kept him around for year one to keep the recruiting class together so Perry was here for both HoD bowls. After the 2016 season he ran Perry off which to this day I think was a terrible decision.

Biagi was outstanding. Hoping that we identify and hire another one like him. 

He was extremely underrated. His last season virtually his whole ST unit was walk ons and people not on the two deep. Not to mention he was an outstanding recruiter. Seth handed out some titles that I wish we would have thrown Biagi way. He really liked UNT and would have stayed with a little convincing.

Absolutely. He had the player buy-in to the culture of wanting to be a successful player on special teams.
