Default It's official, Everest is the ST coach

http://www.steelers.com/article/116967/

Can't say I'm jumping up and down, but at least none of his teams ever allowed 4 in one year.

Just have to wait and see how he does. Give him some time before we pass judgment.

2) When he was special teams coach of the 49ers, he made KR Allen Rossum, P Andy Lee, and ST Michael Robinson pro-bowl alternates. Allen Rossum had his best year as a KR by far under Al Everest, and Andy Lee has NOW become a pro-bowl punter this year. In 2004, five of Everest's players won NFC Special Teams Player of the Week awards. In 2002, his unit had three touchdown returns and five blocked kicks..

3) From 2000-2005 as the ST coordinator for the Saints, he coached 3 more pro-bowlers. in 2002, he was named Special Teams Coach of the Year. His special teams unit with the Saints ranked near the top of the league in all categories.

4) If my sources are correct, he was also a head coach in Italy and won the Italian Championship

I bolded the more intriguing things about him...

Sources: http://49ers.pressdemocrat.com/default.asp?item=433371
http://www.49erswebzone.com/content/...iew.php?id=754

Im fairly excited about the potential he brings to this team. Kugler and Everest JUST MIGHT turn out to be some great under-the-radar hirings this season.

I'm with you psychoward......at least Everest has a good resume as a ST coach in the league. Ligashesky had 2 bad years with the Rams, and before that was a ST assistant in JAX.

Its an upgrade at the position. Welcome coach E!!!

This guy has some good experience as a ST's coordinator and the way I look at it, our ST's can only get better - can't get much worse.

Welcome Coach Everest!

i'll say "looks like a good hire" as soon as i read Asst. ST coach Amos Jones fired by Everett in tomorrows paper. he has got to still have the stench of ligashesky all over him. everetts 1st task may be to drop the hammer...(save tomlin from all the "dirty work")

At first thought I would say someone that is Excited about a hiring of a Special Teams coach would sound Nutts... lol. But I was excited a few years back when we drafted Daniel Sepulveda the Punter and he has worked out ok. Just glad to hear that we have that spot covered, now for our new WR coach.

i dont care about all his college and other league stats. all that doesnt matter unless ur successfull in the NFL, cuz thats where OUR TEAM plays.

and as far as im concerned. he hasnt proven to be a successful ST coach in this league.
his Special Teams in the past have been OK, but not GREAT.

i dont know if this is necessarily an upgrade... or just another "available" coach tomlin wants to make "great".
ill just have to wait and see.

Everest......was named NFL Special Teams Coach of the Year in 2002 when his special teams units had three touchdown returns and blocked five kicks during the season. http://www.steelers.com/article/116967/

and I bet as far as Al Everest is concerned....you havent proven to be a successful reader of articles or poster on this forum.
