Right after appointing Anthony Lynn as his offensive coordinator, head coach Rex Ryan quickly made mention of the widespread respect Lynn has among his fellow coaches on staff and in the locker room. Some of the team’s most high profile players confirmed that respect and explained why.
LeSean McCoy, who has worked closely with Lynn while he served as running backs coach, said there’s a reason he’s respected.
“He’s a tough coach and demands a lot of respect,” said McCoy. “He’s really big on the small details. He wants to win. He’s one of those coaches that played the game, so he brings that attitude of urgency. You know you got to win, every possession matters. He can understand a lot of the players because he has played the game, especially a running back.
“In the running back room, he knows what we are looking for or what’s not going well. He can really relate. I think that’s major when a coach has played, and he’s a player. He can honestly understand what the players are going through, and that matters.”
