Carolina Panthers’ new special teams coordinator Thomas McGaughey gives power to the players
Q. The philosophy here has been directional punting. Does that mesh with what you’ve tried to do?
A. Absolutely. I was born in the directional punting system with Frank Gansz Jr. (as a player at the University of Houston) and that’s all I’ve ever known. His dad taught it to him. So to me that’s kind of the only way you can do it.
