What are your impressions of Utah State four weeks into spring drills?
"It's been great. These first few months have been awesome. I hit the ground running anddidn'thave a lot of lead up time going into this. The players have been great, knowing that I came in with just a couple of days to prepare. It's really been a positive experience. All the support people at the university and the athletic department, as well as the structure of the football program and how its run, has been really neat to see."
Are there goals or percentages you will put on those different groups throughout the year?
"First,we'regoing to play extremely fast and extremely hard. That's kind of our mantra. We want to play fast and we want to play physical. We want to make plays. Those are the three things we want to do. We're still trying to find our playmakers after losing some to graduation or new schemes. They come in in all aspects. We want to be really aggressive. We're going to be intelligently aggressive. We want to be a really good punt blocking team. Hopefully we'll be able to do some fakes and that sort of thing. That's part of our package. We want to be exciting in the return game and make some things happen there. We take a safe approach on special teams, but it's also an aggressive approach. We get about 25 30 snaps during a game and we want to be as aggressive as we can in those."
What can Aggie fans expect from Utah State's special teams with you as its coordinator?
to. When they realize how important special teams are, it makes my job a lot easier. I'm learning the players and trying to fit the right pieces to the puzzle. I think we'll have a chance to be a pretty good special teams group."
Utah State had two running backs drafted in the NFL last year, and could have a third this year. Do you sense a high standard within the running backs group?
Dave Ungerer Wants Utah State's Special Teams to be Aggressive and Play With Toughness
What has impressed you the most with Utah State football since you were Nike Air Max 90 Toddler Girl
"We definitely want to finish in the top part of our conference in every aspect of coverage or return. It does have a correlation with the success of the team. When we look at the numbers, we don't look at it as far as accolades. We look at it as efficiency and helping the offense have a short field and the defense have a long field. If we can do that, then we're part of the team and really helping to set the table for them. If we do that, then some of those other things will come along with it. We want to help the offense and defense be as successful as we can."
As the special teams coordinator and running backs coach at Utah State, Ungerer has jumped in wholeheartedly. With spring practice in its final week, he is working to bring his own flair to the program and carry over the success he has seen in the past.
"Because I came from Washington State, I compare a lot of what I went through with them to where I am today. There were a couple of players that got hurt before spring and a couple more during spring. Robert Marshall was out prior to spring along with Sharrieff Shah. Then Kelvin (Lee) and Abou (Toure) both got hurt during spring. Joe Hill is having a great spring. He's got a lot of ability and practices very, very well. He plays extremely hard and is very diligent in his daily work. Joey DeMartino has had a really good spring and has improved a lot. He's really come on these last four or five practices and is getting a lot better. Those guys have gotten the majority of the work because of the injuries. I expect them to continue along and finish spring really strong, then go into fall camp ready to really do some damage."
as good of a staff asI'veever been a part of."
You are also Utah State's special teams coordinator. During your career, you have had great success in that area. What is your secret?
"Idon'tknow if there's any secret as far as having success in special teams. I think special teams are kind of the blue collar core of your football team. The way you play on special teams tells you a lot about who you are as a team. There are a lot of crucial plays that are being made out there. We have a system that we're implementing this spring thatwe'relearning. As we go into camp,we'llbe able to expound upon those things. They have a good foundation from what's been done here before. They have an appreciation of how important it is and that's really what it comes down Air Max 90 Vt Midnight Fog
"That's about as high of a standard as you can get. Three in the last two years is about as good as you can do. As a group,we'regetting better. We just have to get more guys healthy and that will provide a little more competition. It will also lessen the workload. This is a lot of work for two guys."
"The staffs are very, very similar. There are a lot of really good coaches here who are very diligent to their craft and profession. The tempo that we practice at, the amount of coaching we do both on and off the field is very impressive to watch. The staff just works together. I don't see any difference here than when I was at Alabama or Cal or any of those other places. This is just Nike Air Max 90 Red Hyperfuse
"Hopefully! That's a statistic Ididn'tknow and that's awesome. We work on it every day in practice, putting in a lot of time and effort. Hopefullywe'llcontinue along that line and do a little bit better. You never want to stay the same. You Nike Air Max 90 360 want to always try and get a little better. I have been impressed with the effort that we're giving on that end of special teams."
Utah State blocked six kicks last year. Is that something you hope to duplicate in 2013 and beyond?
"The biggest things that hit me is how much the kids love football and how hard they work. There's such a good focus here on the task at hand. Each and every minute thatwe'reout there is very productive. Each practice is run so smooth and so fast that we get a lot of work done in a short amount of time. Youcan'tdo that without players that are really focused and coaches that are really organized."
Dave Ungerer joins the Utah State football program with 26 years of coaching experience and has been a part of five bowl games. During his career he has coached at such BCS schools as Alabama, California, Oregon State, and most recently Washington State.
