The Countdown to Kickoff campaign continues to bring a variety of stories, interviews and informative reports. Today, we continue our assistant coach features with the eighth of 10 audio interviews during our meeting with defensive line and special teams coach Chad Wilt.

Wilt discusses with LibertyFlames.com the change for the defensive line in the 3-4 scheme and the personnel that the defensive front line needs to be successful. Fans will have the opportunity to hear about Steven Ackley, Kevin Richard and Colin Dugan, who are in line to be the starting three on the defensive line.
Wilt goes on to share how guys like Trey Jacobs, Tim Smith and Soeren Wendland, among others, will spell the starting trio for spurts during the season. There is excitement in the air over the addition of Noah Greenbaum to the kicking unit and the fall camp of kicker Zac Kolegue. Wilt also touches on the unsung heroes of the punt and kick return teams, which helped Liberty become so explosive in those categories.

Our next audio interview on the schedule is slated for Sunday when LibertyFlames.com will visit with defensive backs coach Marshall Roberts.
