Former NFL coach Gary Zauner is holding a Special Teams and Kicking Clinic at Kino Stadium on Monday, January 7 from 2:00–3:30 pm. Zauner will be instructing players getting ready for the Casino Del Sol College All-Star Game. Fans and youth players are welcome to observe the clinic.

Zauner spent 13 years in the NFL as a Special Teams Coordinator. From 1994-2001 he worked for the Minnesota Vikings under Head Coach Dennis Green. He was the Special Teams Coordinator for Brian Billick’s Baltimore Ravens from 2002-2005 and rejoined Green with the Arizona Cardinals in 2006. Zauner was also a consultant for eight different NFL teams during his career.

Zauner also has a strong college football coaching resume, working with special teams players at schools like BYU and San Diego State. For more information on Zauner’s career, including testimonials from NFL players he has worked with, visit www.coachzauner.com.

“It’s an honor to be asked by the bowl committee to hold a clinic,” said Zauner. “It will be a lot of fun. If there is anything I can do to help the Casino Del Sol College All-Star Game, I’m all for it.”

“Gary Zauner is a coaching legend and we are lucky to have him part of the Casino Del Sol College All-Star Game week,” said Joe Dan Rogers, Executive Director of the game. “The college all-stars, and the fans watching, will be receiving instruction from an expert in kicking and special teams.”

The Tucson Padres front office staff is assisting the 2013 Casino Del Sol College All-Star Game operations. The game will be televised on the ESPN family of networks, including ESPN3 and WatchESPN.com. The game will be carried on radio locally on ESPN Tucson 1490 AM and 104.9 FM. Partners for the game include the Tucson Conquistadores, a charitable organization that supports youth in athletic programs throughout southern Arizona.
