QUOTE OF THE DAY
DOUG MARRONE, Head Coach
Q: What do you make of your two coordinators who have two different styles?
A: “I think anyone can tell that at practice. When you look at the four of us, when you add (special teams coordinator) Danny Crossman, when you look at Mike (Pettine) and Nate (Hackett), and myself, we are four completely different personalities that communicate and work well together. I think you need that. You can’t go in there and say ‘Okay, this is what, as a coach, I want this personality to be.’ You have to be yourself because you’re around the players so much, you have to be real. Both of those guys are real.”
