Former Auburn assistant, current Arkansas coach shares crucial adjustment made just before the Kick Six
Just when you thought you knew everything there was to know about the Kick Six, Scott Fountain comes along and shares some great insight leading up to arguably the most memorable play in college football history.
Sam Pittman has received all kinds of praise for his offseason hires of Barry Odom at defensive coordinator and Kendal Briles at offensive coordinator but the coordinator that may prove to have the biggest impact in Fayetteville could prove to be special teams coordinator, Scott Fountain.
The SEC veteran has worked for Auburn, Georgia and Mississippi State during his coaching career and now has the task of fixing the Razorbacks special teams unit, which has been among the worst units in the nation in recent seasons.
Aside from fielding some outstanding special teams units during his time in the league, Fountain also has more experience in big-time games and situations than just about any other assistant coach in the league.
Case in point, he was Auburn’s special teams coordinator back in 2013 and the way he tells it, the Kick Six may not have happened had he not spotted an issue just before the play.
During a recent appearance on “The Hog Pod,” Fountain shared the moments leading up to the play that resulted in Chris Davis’ epic touchdown return.
He was the special teams coordinator for one of the biggest plays in 𝗰𝗼𝗹𝗹𝗲𝗴𝗲 𝗳𝗼𝗼𝘁𝗯𝗮𝗹𝗹 𝗵𝗶𝘀𝘁𝗼𝗿𝘆.
