The Coach Who Never Punts

Here’s an excellent Grantland video about high school football coach Kevin Kelly of Pulaski Academy in Little Rock, Arkansas, who never punts, regardless of his field position. On kickoffs, he kicks nothing but onside kicks.

This is an excellent example of a coach who has re-examined conventional thinking about his sport and defied public pressure to use a strategy that seems to work better.

In this video, he explains the math and odds behind his no-punting strategy.

Even if you’re not a football fan, this video is worth watching just to observe the thought process that led him to his radical strategy.
