With Coach Whiz off playing golf today at the Safeway Invitational in Cali, Russ Grimm ran things during OTAs. It’s good practice for when he eventually departs the team for a head coaching position.
Fitz gave the assistant coach some props:
“Russ is going to be a head coach soon. We’re going to try and get him a head coaching job soon. We’re going to go to the playoffs a couple more years in a row and he’ll get his opportunity. He does a good job. He’s a natural leader.”
That’s nice of Larry to say. Apparently, Grimm mainly needs to work on the whole “Oh Jesus, you mean I have to talk to those media parasites and front office jerks?” part of the job, and is actually good at the football part.
