University of Central Florida head coach George O’Leary was a spectator at Bills minicamp practice Wednesday. Bills head coach Doug Marrone coached as an assistant under O’Leary when he was the head coach at Georgia Tech. But O’Leary was keeping a watchful eye on a certain defensive lineman that he coached at Central Florida during practice.
“He’s got some ties to some of the guys that work here and they told me yesterday he was going to be up here,” said Troup. “He was talking to me about the same stuff. Run to the ball, keep working, stuff like that. You’ve got to take him with a grain of salt. He’s always got something for you to improve on no matter how good you think you are. It’s coaching all the time.”
O’Leary also asked about when Troup was finishing up his degree. The Bills defensive lineman will finish up his degree later this summer with a major in Interdisciplinary Studies and a minor in Communication.
“He had a good relationship with my mother and they still talk all the time,” said Troup. “He’s really a part of my family and known my family situation. He’s always checking in on us.”
