Veteran special teams coach Mike Westhoff yet to rejoin Saints; Sean Payton still hopeful

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; That "Someone" needs to hold on to the ball. That's probably why they plugged AK in there....

Payton pulled out all the stops for post season. AK fielding returns was necessary because we stunk at getting good field position after kicks.

I believe that was the reasoning. Do or die, put your best players in the game. Experimenting is over with.

Ross Tucker
@RossTuckerNFL
Longtime NFL special teams coach Mike Westhoff tells us on @SiriusXMNFL that he will probably be back with Saints this year if he is cleared medically from a recent surgery.

Love hearing that, but I personally cannot stand Ross Tucker. I listen to NFL Radio every day and enjoy every host except for Tucker. Nothing but a blowhard that is not well researched and treats callers like crap ... and he is so dense he probably doesn't even realize.

Okay, Tucker rant over. Sheesh!

Edit: No I'm not. Usually offensive linemen are the most intelligent players on the team. Tucker played guard and center. Got that one wrong.

Bump ...

Didn't see this posted anywhere. Podcast with Ross Tucker speaking with Saints S/T coach Mike. Fast forward to 4:53 or so ... he will in fact return in 2018. Glad you are back and in good spirits coach !

One Tough Hombre..
In 1988, Westhoff was diagnosed with cancer of the femur in his left leg. Originally, the condition was misdiagnosed and Westhoff was nearly fatally wounded after the doctor accidentally cut one of his arteries. Once the correct diagnosis was made Westhoff underwent ten surgeries to remove the cancer and the bone replacing it with bone grafts, plates, screws and pins. A cracked bone graft in 2007, caused Westhoff to announce his departure from the Jets.In 2008, Westhoff entered the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center to undergo a procedure to replace the missing femur with a titanium rod.After vigorous rehabilitation, Westhoff was able to walk again and returned to the Jets' sidelines in September 2008. :Source Wiki
