“He is an outstanding coach, top-of-the-line I have been round,” Bennett stated at the beginning of the Patriots’ playoff run. “All the time ready. Preparation is vital. I have been within the league happening my tenth yr now, and he is helped me develop as a participant tremendously. He is invested in me, and I am invested in him, and we have now an ideal relationship collectively.”
That “funding” is a Daboll trademark. He has been some of the nicely-appreciated assistant coaches within the NFL — by gamers and media — due to the time he has taken to develop a private connection.
“He is right down to earth, straightforward to speak with,” Bennett stated. “He is trustworthy and upfront. I can come to him and say something. We simply have a very good relationship. It is a brotherhood.”
As for his soccer acumen, Bennett stated: “He is very sensible. He has offensive coordinator [experience], he is coached quarterbacks, so he sees the sport in a different way, and he helps us see the sport in a different way. He is superior.”
Daboll, who turns forty two on April 14, started his profession working underneath Nick Saban and Invoice Belichick. As he branched out — all the time teaching on the offensive aspect of the ball — he did so underneath coaches Eric Mangini, Tony Sparano and Romeo Crennel, all of whom had robust connections to the Invoice Parcells/Belichick teaching tree.
