NEW ORLEANS – From Los Angeles, California to Winslow, Arizona to Foxborough, Mass to Atlanta, Georgia, NFL players and coaches need to “Get Back.”
In Sunday’s Super Bowl LIII, you might see an LA Rams assistant or strength and conditioning coach Ted Rath pull head coach Sean McVay off the field and back to the Rams’ sideline.
On the other side of the field, New England strength and conditioning coach Moses Cabrera might grab hold of a Patriots player, head coach Bill Belichick or offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels if they invade the playing surface.
The art of the “Get Back Coach” is not limited to the NFL and its Super Bowl contenders. In fact, as with most NFL talent, the college football game provides the scouting blueprint for how the job can be perfected. Exhibit 1-A, we give you the Clemson Tigers and its dynamic duo of defensive coordinator Will Venerables and Tigers strength and conditioning coach Adam Smotherman, the prototype for all “Get Back Coaches” everywhere.
If there’s a lull in the action, check it out on the sidelines.
