John Fox, Paul Wiggin, Sean Payton discussed on WGBB Sports Talk New York


I'd coach tiki barber every day in my life. Favorite coach coach with favorite coached that coast with john. Fox i mean he. He's got a lot of success. Yeah yes I'm kind of think of war of the guys that i worked for I loved to work was two years with wade phillips more dinner. I've vince tobin. I liked him all boy. That's a hard one. Because i have respect for these guys i don't i don't have any eight my heart from yes so I really enjoyed you know most of my career. I worked for defensive head coach and bottom line. We were successful offense and let me do what i wanted to do. And so it was really fun to do that. paul wiggin. I worked for at stanford. I the guy's a great guy i'd go. I'd go to war every day for him. So you walsh who's a big influence on me Being a stanford right near the forty niners. So that's really a hard one to say you pay. An and fox is probably one of the great coaching staffs of all time. Would you agree with that. I mean that's that's a. that's the three musketeers. That's a nice little tree right there. Well will say this. When i hired john fox he had one offer to be a db coach. He wasn't going to be a coordinator anywhere. And george young questioned me about jim. Fired raiders yet. This but that that. I should george. I like the guy sean payton was going to go back to college. He could not get a job in the nfl he was done. He couldn't get an interview in the when. I heard it so he was going back to college and i really like shawn because he was a good guy and i could frame to be a coordinator to playcaller and all that stuff. Because he hadn't done it. He's only had one year in the nfl as a quality control guy so he was really green behind the but i liked his attitude. I interviewed ten coaches for the quarterback job. I was running the offense. And i wanted a guy that i thought you know. This guy sticks with me to three or four years. He would have the potential to be a coordinator and then i made him the coordinator after my mom died and was worn out and turned play calling over to him. I was worn out. It was time probably ask job. Jim fossil our show. Jim 'cause i. Can i talk to you for days but unfortunately we gotta pay the bills and we gotta get into a little bit fell. But jim foster former giants head coach. Thanks so much for joining. Jim have a great night and we will talk soon. Thank you anytime you guys got great questions..
