To those have there's noon press conference at one bills drive. And it's expected the bills will announce introduce officially. Dug around as their new head coach and we'll have the press conference here. On WGR Howard -- me down with your calls coming up. I mentioned you know we've spent yesterday and today animals that what time tomorrow and probably. Try to find out more about dug around and talk to people who know dug round. We are joined by rich semi rich works for ESPN New York dot com and has covered the jets forever. Including that three years and -- for years when now. Doug girl with the offensive line coach and Herm Edwards staff but rich also. Has a history dating back we dug around to win both of them -- Syracuse University. We're always playing football rich I assume you're a budding journalism Starr -- as you at that time. I don't know about that but I was covered -- political daily orange. Back in the mid eighties and so yeah I don't -- for a long time. So what for the bills fans they're listening rich what can you tell us do you have a working knowledge of personal knowledge of dug around what can you tell us about -- -- other than the stuff we read in his bio you know on the Internet. Yeah I mean it's. I've also maintained that with Doug effect I was up at Syracuse. Early November it and spent a little time with them. And is thought this and through stories for the daily news a few years ago -- Pia in New York that was -- in actual coaches meetings. Practice consume rooms and so I've been around a whole lot. In. A couple of words that come to mind he's he's a no nonsense disciplinarian. Eight these kind of got that old school. Persona and kind of reminds me get ourselves a little bit you know it's not going to be easy for the bills players that he's gonna come in the -- And he's very meticulous in demanding. I know at at Syracuse. Strict dress code for the players. Even the coaches in the coaches officers they're not allowed to Wear sneakers they had to Wear dress shoes every day on the job. Now I don't know feel. Carry that over into the NFL but. That gives you a little insight into it without demanding years when he he has a good guys there's no doubt about that age groups in league and he's very loyal. But it's gonna be you know -- -- no nonsense. You think it'll work and -- run up Parcells Parcells could pull that off because he had the resume you know where he won reverie was Maroney has. No NFL head coaching resume and it's not like the -- he's -- -- hey guys I won I had a couple of -- -- at Syracuse or Pete does the no nonsense discipline. Tough guy routine do you think it'll work with professional athletes. Well it's. You know it's a great question it's you know so people think that works in the NFL's of people. Think it doesn't it just depends on the coach. I've seen it in my time here go both ways and means you know Rex Ryan will -- you know players coaches -- players coach. And yet -- first couple years and I've also cover ourselves. Where he did it his way he had success I think it depends on the guy but think about a bit interstate is that he's. He's been around both types of coaches you -- permit which permit the ultimate players' coach you know outgoing. Pat you on the but doesn't you know doesn't curse. So don't get around that type of coach but he was also around shortly for a few years and strong -- is basically. You know -- -- off -- Parcells so so it doesn't has been around both styles and I think he's formulated -- old style. And the dignity you don't get enough credit for is just -- it up its mind. You know anybody probably a lot of your -- susser accused this year. -- mean make completely change their offense in the -- he's he just decided to total up tempo. You know no huddle you know. Writing content type missed the cut a lot -- -- to three years of running a pro style offense that you saw the difference there were exciting team that put a lot of points -- This year and I think that was so much on the musical instruments and stuff. Virtually meaningless ESPN New York -- I -- may have just partially answered this question rich but I was gonna ask you. You know her you brought Herm Edwards you brought Sean Payton. He I believe he was on Phil former staff at Tennessee he worked for George O'Leary at Georgia Tech. Who do you think or USC credited as you know the big influences. Terms of football to him. Interestingly act against Dick MacPherson in the former Syracuse coach. You know Dick. You know still around a certain program. He -- ducks coach at Syracuse and then become you know became kind of you know augment toward him and just and just. Pulled a lot of wisdom as -- and Dick what the players coached true. So I think that would be you know one guy who's probably that the greatest influence on his career but you mentioned George O'Leary. Actually see a lot of in Jordan earlier. The blood to it earlier in doubt because you know George is kind of a tough guy and in the you know I see that and so I think he's probably a combination of a lot of the different. Coaches he's been under I don't think he has Max. Gregarious personality in front of the camera dot -- that's pretty -- key market to get too crazy approach cameras are show a lot of promotion. That's probably more the the patent side at. Lastly I got -- rich is we're all wondering now. What's his staff gonna be all about him at the -- the big question. You know who's gonna hire. Offense according to defense quarter all that stuff how well connected is he in the NFL or do you think. You know we're gonna see you know a staff basically from college connections. That's a good question I think he's always maintained is that outside his. There is no doubt about that you know he's close with Carmichael. -- -- that. Coordinator. So I mean that they'll be lateral move for car Michael's side I don't know if that's it it's hard to move coaches around here have felt electric giving him -- -- job so. That that could be cut by it could be a little bit of a proper look at the other -- looking at it step. It is Syracuse he has a really good coaches there but I think. I think you know I read today that maybe actually occurred the different supported or IP is a really good. That he does have medical people tell me they think she could be a really good at a -- I think he might be a candidate for the head job there. So. That would be a good tires that were able to take it with -- So keep -- -- I don't actually -- -- very aggressive. Attacking style defense. And I think with the bills personnel. I think he'd be pretty good put. You know it's going to be trusting that we don't do -- he's only been out for years and probably some former saints coaches I would think. I think Donnie Henderson was on his staff that Syracuse and he was on the jets snapped at some point right would he be a good coordinator. Thought it was a coordinator for the jets recovered it and if there were -- they had wanted to highest ranked defense in the -- pretend that it cost. Plus that defense the following year that a lot of injuries I don't think she's regarded as I can keep it did PP coach which is forty years now. But I don't I I hate I guess he could be coordinator possibility but he basically claimed that with the jets as a coordinator so. I don't think that would be to -- A rich thanks very much for criminologist actually insight. Our terror that is rich media from espn.com. Talk a little bit more about dug around noon press conference today.
