The Big Board: Greene out as punt returner

10/23/2012

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- In the first half of Saturday's win over Miami, Rashad Greene fumbled a punt.

It was Greene's third fumble of the season in his first year as the full-time punt returner, and while none have cost Florida State a game, it proved to be one too many for Jimbo Fisher.

"The punt returns we've got to get fixed. We've had too many there," Fisher said. "We'll see if [Greene] can catch it, and if not, you've got to swap and put somebody else in there."

It didn't take long for Fisher to make the switch. He announced Tuesday that Tyler Hunter would take over as the primary punt returner, with Greene slipping to the No. 2 spot on the depth chart.

"He's doing a lot of things on offense and maybe we can take the load off him," Fisher said.

The fumbles were the key to the decision, but Greene's production had been diminishing since recording his second punt return score of the season against Wake Forest in Week 3.

Here are Greene's game-by-game totals thus far:
