  • Who is coaching Special Teams?

    Because he deserves to be fired. Seriously. Between jumping offsides on punts, giving up long returns, holding/blocking in back calls, and the ball hitting Carter on the punt against NE (he shouldn't have been within 20 yards of where the ball could end up). He has the best kicker, the best return man, and one of the best punters in the league, and the special teams still stinks.

          Didn't someone say he's one of Fox's buddies? At least it's not Ben McDaniels.

              Jeff Rodgers enters his third season as special teams coordinator for the Denver Broncos in 2013 after spending the previous two years coaching that unit under Broncos Head Coach John Fox in Carolina.

              In addition to his three seasons as a coordinator, he has seven years of NFL experience instructing special teams along with three years coaching at the collegiate level.

              In between his tenure with the Panthers and five seasons with the 49ers, he spent one year as the special teams coordinator at Kansas State University in 2008, instructing one of the nation’s top units. The Wildcats led the country with a school-record nine blocked kicks and finished first in kickoff coverage (opponent 21.9-yard line). Kansas State also scored six special teams touchdowns, as returner Brandon Banks and kicker Brooks Rossman both earned All-Big 12 Conference honors.

              He spent five years with the 49ers from 2003-07, serving as the special teams quality control coach for two seasons before being promoted to assistant special teams coach in 2005. In Rodgers’ first year with the 49ers, they led the NFL with five special teams takeaways. Long snapper Brian Jennings was named to the Pro Bowl in 2004, and during the 2005 season, kicker Joe Nedney converted 26-of-28 field-goal attempts (92.9 pct.), to set a team accuracy record. That year, San Francisco’s kickoff coverage unit allowed the fewest kickoff return yards in the NFL (960).

              In 2007, he helped Pro Bowl punter Andy Lee finish first in the NFC and second in the NFL with a 41.0 net punting average and set a league record with 42 punts placed inside the 20. That season, San Francisco also ranked first in the league in kickoff coverage with its opponents’ average starting field position at the 24.9-yard line.

              He began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at the University of Arizona from 2001-02, where he worked with the secondary and linebackers.

              Rodgers played linebacker at North Texas, where he earned his degree in business, specializing in entrepreneurship and strategic management. His older brother, Jay, is entering his second season as the Broncos’ defensive line coach and his fifth season overall on the club’s defensive staff. Rodgers, who attended Westlake High School in Austin, Texas, was born in St. Paul, Minn.
