Solid Blue fans complained a lot last season about the team not having one guy in charge of the unit.

Buh handled kickoff and punt duties while former wide receivers coach Tommy Mainord and now co-defensive coordinator Derrick Ansley handled the return duties.

It wasn’t supposed to be on the agenda for today, but when coach Stoops shows up, you pry things out of him.

Hear from Stoops in the video.
