A familiar face has returned to the Pac-12: Pete Alamar. "Pete came highly recommended by people who I respect in the coaching profession," Shaw said in a statement. "He is one of those rare coaches who can coach not only scheme, but also the technique of snapping, punting and kicking." Alamar replaces Brian Polian, who left Stanford last month to join Kevin Sumlin's staff at Texas A&M." I hope you're all looking forward to being on the other side of an Alamar Special!
