The first handicapped person to ever coach in the NFL, Blevins is the league’s most sought-after kicking expert - a remarkable accomplishment considering that he has never walked a day in his life. Blevins has suffered from cerebral palsy his entire life, but it never held him back. Blevins’ incredible coaching abilities are displayed from some of the best kickers in the NFL, including Olindo Mare, Adam Vinatieri and Joe Nedney.
With the mindset that he had to be the premier kicking expert, Doug Blevins worked hard to master his technique, tumbling over barriers at every level of football. His inspiring achievements have motivated even the largest of companies, as The New York Times, People Magazine, the Washington Post, Fast Company and HBO’s Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel, all recognized Blevins incomprehensible desire that lead him to his dream.
A 1988 graduate of East Tennessee State University, Doug Blevins started his coaching career as a student assistant in 1982 while at the University of Tennessee. He worked with the kickers for the Volunteers for two seasons before being named kicking coach at Emory and Henry College in Emory, Virginia in 1984. He worked with and coached kickers at the college level for six years, studying, mastering and loving the craft. He took some time as a consultant for the New York Jets and New England Patriots in the mid-90’s, as well as the kicking coordinator of the World League for a few years.
Thanks to his time in New England, he was recommended to the Dolphins as a kicking coach. In Blevins’ first year as kicking coach with the Miami Dolphins, he guided kicker Olindo Mare to 28 field goals and 117 points which were the most-ever by a Dolphins rookie or first-year player. Overall in his career with the Dolphins, Blevins coached Mare to connect for 79.4% of field goal attempts, which stands as the highest percent in club history. These are just a couple of the minor feats Doug Blevins has accomplished in his life; when you meet him in a person you are lucky enough to hear a lot more.
