EDIT-Did a quick search and found this referencing some problems.
The SD Special Teams were atrocious - as in, historically bad - in 2010 (which is when the linked article is from). Bisaccia showed up in 2011.
In 2010, they gave up four punt/KO returns for TDs. They had four (4!) punts blocked. The Football Outsiders metrics have them as the worst unit by a huge margin over the period from 2003-2012.
Last year, FO had them ranked 8th. No return TDs, but they did still have 3 punts blocked. Huh. No punts blocked in '11. Anyway, seems like a solid coaching performance.
