Not Taking Possession

4th down, Team A is flagged for holding which if declined, will result of Team A short of the line to gain.

Team B tells you that they wish to accept the penalty.

What do you do?

Remind them of their options (and I would talk to the coach):

"Coach, if you accept the penalty, it will be 4th and 22. If you decline, YOU GET THE BALL."

No need to expand that second option: keep it simple. If he still wants the penalty, fine with me.

While I'm nodding my head "yes", I am telling him that if he declines the penalty it's his ball.

We won't get to the second option

Hey, if they want the field position, and maybe the other team is lousy at punting....

If that's what he wants, he'll tell me that.

I'm not holding my breath
