If Curt Maggitt wants to improve his pass rush, Sal Sunseri will show him how.
If Rajion Neal's ball security needs a pointer, Jay Graham will provide it.
If, however, one of Tennessee's kickers needs a pointer — and apparently they do — who you gonna call?
The position that influences the outcome of so many college football games has no position coach.
"When they (the NCAA) cut, cut, cut, cut,'' Derek Dooley said Thursday, "that was the first position that got compromised.''
Once upon a time, college football programs had kicking coaches. Tennessee had a great one, George Cafego, from 1955-1984.
Today, programs might have special-teams coaches but he probably isn't a specialist who can fine-tune a kicker.
In the offseason, the kicker can hire a private coach on his own dime. But come football season, a kicker is a man, more or less, without a coach.
Tennessee's kicking game has issues and has for several years.
This season, only five games in, UT's kickers have failed on four extra-point tries, going 21-of-25.
It hasn't cost a game yet, but it might. Extra points are supposed to be automatic. They were for John Becksvoort. He hit 161 in a row from 1991-94.
I researched as far back as the Becksvoort era and there was never a season when UT missed four extra points.
Michael Palardy missed twice and lost his job to Derrick Brodus. Brodus missed twice and now it's Palardy's turn again when the Vols go to Mississippi State on Oct. 13.
When it comes to field goals, Palardy and Brodus are a combined 8 of 10. Nothing wrong with that.
Penn State would take it. Sam Ficken became notorious for missing four field goals in a game the Nittany Lions lost to Virginia earlier this year.
UT fans should remember the 2010 UAB game. The Vols won in overtime, only because UAB's kicker missed five field-goal tries in regulation.
NCAA rules provide for only eight position coaches. They also prohibit UT from bringing in a "volunteer" helper to work with the kickers.
So where do Palardy and Brodus turn? To Dooley.
"I haven't admitted that because (I've been) waiting until we performed well to say it,'' Dooley confessed.
"But I meet with 'em. I learn each year. I spend a lot of time with the kickers and have my whole career.''
For the sake of argument, I wondered, why not hire a kicking coach and let the tight ends work
things out on their own. Don't kickers impact a game more than tight ends?
"It's a good argument,'' Dooley said. "I've thought about it.''
But he rejected it, calling tight end one of the most complex positions. You have to know how to run block, pass protect and understand pass routes.
So he campaigns for adding staff, like a kicking coach. Football, he argues, has the highest coach-to-athlete ratio yet is under the most scrutiny, the most pressure to succeed.
But in this era, his is a voice in the wilderness.
"They look at me like I've got three heads,'' he said.
One of them, it turns out,is for coaching the kickers.
