With Friday marking the 12th anniversary of the death of former Arizona defensive back Pat Tillman, his former head coach, Dave McGinnis, remembers someone who “excelled” at everything, especially “the way he treated human beings.”
It’s too early for must-win games … except not if you’re in Seattle, it’s not. The Seahawks can’t afford to fall another game behind front-running Arizona in the NFC West if they intend to compete for a third straight division title.
Jen Welter was the first female coaching intern in the NFL, a job she worked this summer with the Arizona Cardinals. Welter played football, coached football and worked with the Cards, so she knows plenty about the game … and what she knows is that full-time female assistants in the league is not that far off.
April 22 is more than Earth Day. It’s Pat Tillman Day, too. The former Arizona Cardinals’ defensive back was killed by friendly fire in Afghanistan 11 years ago, and his former coach Dave McGinnis tells us how he remembers him. “If you’re talking about the Hall of Fame as a human being,” he said, “then he should be the first person in that Hall of Fame.”
With the 11th anniversary of the death of Pat Tillman approaching, we checked in with Pat’s former coach, Dave McGinnis, to ask him what he remembered of his former safety. And what he remembered is all good. “There’s not a head coach in the league who would not have wanted Pat Tillman playing for their football team,” he said.
