"There's no secrets in football"
- by Doug Samuels 14 years ago
Campus to campus coaching views vary on whether to open up practice to the fans and media. Down at UCF, George O'Leary prefers to put it all out on the table for everyone to see.
“This is a time when people are getting up about football and I think it’s good to let the people come out and watch practice."
"There’s no secrets in football. The way I look at is that you have good players and bad players.”
O'Leary, who has spent time at the NFL level with the Chargers and Vikings, believes that more teams, and leagues, should do things the way that the NFL does.
“College teams can, but they just choose not to. The pros do it because of the interest. The NFL probably has the best model of any league in sports about how to run things and their public relations. It’s outstanding.”
