The 33rd Team’s Insiders Network is a group of former NFL coaches and front-office executives who are here to provide insight and perspective into all things football. Each week during the season, we reach out to members of our Insiders Network to get their thoughts on a topical question. Here is this week’s question:
Who has been your biggest mentor throughout your career?
O.A. “Bum” Phillips. I know you’re surprised! What made him such a great mentor was his knowledge, experience, communication and teaching skills.
Bill Parcells has been my biggest mentor. He taught me so much about football, and more importantly about life. I treasure the four years that I had a chance to work for him.
