Dolphins head coach Tony Sparano when asked about Perry Fewell taking over as interim head coach for the Bills reminded everyone that he and Fewell once coached together.
Sparano was the tight ends coach for the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2002. Fewell was the secondary coach for the Jaguars on that same coaching staff.
“Perry was always a strong leader and got the most out of his players,” said Sparano. “And that’s what I saw on the tape from their game last week. Guys were playing hard for him.”
Fewell offered the following on his recollections of Sparano as a coach back in 2002 when they were together on the Jaguars staff.
“Good football coach,” said Fewell. “Very thorough, very knowledgeable, detailed in his work. You could see big things coming out of Tony, and I’m very happy for what he has done and what he’s doing there.”
