Taking a look at the SEC's best position coaches

Posted by ESPN.com's Chris Low

Having taken a look at the best coordinators in the SEC earlier today, we turn our attention to the best position coaches. Keep in mind that some of these guys may have a coordinator title or even an assistant head-coaching title.

The other thing to remember in all this is that some head coaches are more hands-on than others in calling plays on offense and making the calls on defense.

Anyway, here's our list (alphabetically) of the 15 best position coaches and/or assistants in the SEC. I'll be interested to hear your feedback:

  • Shane Beamer, cornerbacks, South Carolina

  • Mike Bobo, quarterbacks, Georgia

  • Jamie Bryant, secondary, Vanderbilt

  • Robbie Caldwell, offensive line, Vanderbilt

  • Rodney Garner, defensive line, Georgia

  • Chuck Heater, safeties, Florida

  • Hugh Nall, offensive line, Auburn

  • Joe Pendry, offensive line, Alabama

  • Paul Petrino, receivers, Arkansas

  • Tracy Rocker, defensive line, Ole Miss

  • Randy Sanders, quarterbacks, Kentucky

  • Stacy Searels, offensive line, Georgia

  • Kirby Smart, secondary, Alabama

  • Kevin Steele, linebackers, Alabama

  • Greg Studrawa, offensive line, LSU
