There are actions to specifically enqueue scripts and stylesheets:

If you really need to change the location of a default script by hand 
you could use:

$wp_scripts->add_data('handle', 'group', 1 );

as Otto suggested, where 1 = footer, 0 = head. This has to run after the 
scripts are added/registered but before any scripts are printed, best 
done from the above actions with priority of 11 or more.

However note that scripts are moved from the footer to the head if a 
dependent script is enqueued there, forcing the default script back to 
the footer would break the dependency.
