After the recent firing of Rams Head Coach Jeff Fisher, former coach and current NFL Network analyst Steve "Mooch" Mariucci joins The Professor on this week's SCHOOLED. The guys discuss: The NFL makes 6-7 coaching changes per year; is it harder to be a head coach today? Also - the differences between college & the NFL. How offensive strategy has evolved, and how defense is keeping up. The state of the West Coast Offense. And more!
Tommie Campbell was a sure thing. He was a first-team All State wide receiver and safety with Olympic calibre track stats (the 3rd fastest high-schooler in the US), and the NFL had their eyes on him. But he blew it. He began to cut classes, lose focus, and was eventually kicked out of two different colleges before getting a job as a janitor in the Pittsburgh airport for $8/hr.
How times have changed. This week on SCHOOLED, The Professor talks to Tommie about what it took to turn his life around - eventually getting drafted in the 7th round by the Tennessee Titans in 2011, and playing today as a champion in the CFL (which Tommie says is harder than the NFL).
Lawyer Milloy is a four-time Pro Bowl selection, three-time All-Pro, and a Super Bowl champion who over 15 seasons as a safety in the NFL played under two of the greatest coaches in the game: Bill Belichick and Pete Carroll.
On this week's SCHOOLED, The Professor talks to Milloy about playing under two of the best and most different coaches in NFL history, and answers a listener's question about who will be remembered as the all-time best.
