The Washington Commanders have welcomed Larry Izzo as their new special teams coordinator, as announced by Ben Standig of TheAthletic.com. Izzo comes to the team from the Kansas City Chiefs, where he spent the last three seasons in a similar role. Prior to his time with the Chiefs, Izzo served as special teams coordinator for the Seattle Seahawks and assistant special teams coordinator for the New York Giants.
Izzo’s extensive experience in coaching and playing makes him a valuable addition to the Commander’s coaching staff. He began his career with the Giants and had a successful playing career before turning to coaching. Izzo played in 200 games for various teams, including the Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots and New York Jets. He was selected to the Pro Bowl three times and won three Super Bowls with the Patriots.
As a coach, Izzo has led some of the most successful special teams performances in recent years. His leadership will be crucial in helping Washington improve its own special teams performance this season, making him an essential addition to the team’s roster of experts.
