I think Weeb, while he knew the x’s and o’s, was more a manager-type coach. In fact, he was a general manager. He was more an overseer — you bring in Clive Rush to run the offense and Walt to run the defense, and he just kind of managed things — whereas Walt was a little more hands-on on the defense, simply because of his background. When it comes to tempo of practice and things like that, a lot of the things that Walt did were very similar to what Weeb did. I would say they were similar in that respect.

And our offense — from what Dan Henning tells me — we started the H-back. I guess I was the first H-back. He knows the date — because he quotes it to me [laughs]. They first started using me as the H-back or a second tight end. We’d run two tight ends, two backs, one wide receiver, and we’d run two wide receivers, one back, and two tight ends. Just moving me around — to the backfield from the fullback position, putting me in motion, having me go in motion and block just like a fullback would block in the interior, except I’d be coming from an angle from the side.

When I got drafted, they didn’t even know anything about it. Nobody really knew about it in college — I kind of kept it hidden. $ ) 6 $ , 3 " . 4&: I am from Knoxville, Tennessee.
