    Re: Steelers Close to Hiring Everest

    I saw this posted elsewhere, apparently from the USC website. Sounds pretty encouraging:

    Everest spent 2000-05 as the special teams coordinator of the New Orleans Saints.

    In 2004, 5 of his players won NFC Special Teams Player of the Week awards, punter Mitch Berger was in the Pro Bowl, John Carney tied the team single game field goal record, Michael Lewis set the team career mark for punt returns and the Saints returned 2 kickoffs for touchdowns.

    In 2003, Carney set the team record for consecutive field goals, Berger led the league in net punting and the Saints blocked a field goal in 3 consecutive games.

    He was named NFL Special Teams Coach of the Year in 2002 as his unit had 3 TD returns, 5 blocked kicks and an interception. That year, Carney set a club season scoring record, Lewis established an NFL season standard for kickoff/punt return yards and the Saints set the team season punt return coverage record.

    Prior to that, he was with the Cards. He has 28 years of football coaching experience.

    Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee quotes 49ers coach Mike Singletary as saying the team has made finding a return specialist a high priority this offseason. Singletary also indicated that a personal matter led to Al Everest's departure as special-teams coach, stressing that the botched reverse at Seattle wasn't the reason for a change. Singletary: "If I was that shallow as a coach, I need to be out of the game. It was just something that Al needs to take care of." Everest subsequently interviewed with the Steelers for their job as special-teams coach.

    Matt Maiocco of the Santa Rosa Press-Democrat says new 49ers special-teams coach Kurt Schottenheimer held the same job with the Chiefs when 49ers defensive coordinator Greg Manusky was a top special-teams player for Kansas City. Maiocco: "Schottenheimer was out of coaching in 2009. He said he studied the principles of the spread offense in visits to Texas A&M and Illinois. He is defensive coordinator this week at the East-West Shrine Game in Orlando, so he is getting a head start evaluating draft-eligible players."

    Dan Brown of the San Jose Mercury News quotes Singletary as saying Everest was "doing a fine job" for the 49ers. Why, then, would the 49ers let his contract expire, allowing Everest to surface as a candidate with the Steelers? Singletary was vague.

    John Crumpacker of the San Francisco Chronicle quotes Singletary this way on Everest: "I think Al was doing a good job during the year, but there were some things I had to deal with personally. It was just something Al needed to take care of. I had to let him go.
    Coach Singletary is confusing me. Why would Al have to take care of something if Coach Singletary had "some things I had to deal with personally". And then he had to let Al go?

    Only thing I can think of is that Singletary was sleeping with Al's wife, and Al found out. So he had to let Al go.

    YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST!!!
