You take it hard. But a coach, you don't sleep very well for a long time. So you second-guess everything you do as a coach. As a player, you go out and work harder in the gym. And so for a coach I definitely think there's more of that that sticks with you for a longer period of time.
Being in politics is like being a football coach. You have to be smart enough to understand the game, and dumb enough to think it's important.
I played football for probably 16 years, total. I coached for 28 years. I never went to a game where the head coach didn’t come back with my team. Me and myself for 13 years as a head coach, 15 years as an assistant, 15 years playing when the head coach went to a game, when we returned, the head coach came back with us, so that to me, I just don’t know how you do that and say, ‘Hey, I’m going to stay in Ohio.’ ... That was the mistake to me. What happened in the bar or whatever, that’s secondary. You go back with your team. We finished by getting home and getting everybody — that’s your responsibility as the head coach to make sure everybody lands on that plane, safe. Everybody gets back to the facility, then you do what you have to do.
Because of my commitment to the game, I relented to pressure directly from my coach to play injured. Despite the pain, I suited up, the staff injected me with what I now know was a powerful and sometimes dangerous painkiller that the NFLPA has warned against using, and I gave it my all for the team. I played until it was clear that I could not sue my ankle to safely perform my playing responsibilities. On top of that, the pain was extreme, i took a seat on the sideline and my coach came up to me, very upset, and shouted, ‘ What’s wrong with you ? What’s wrong with you ? ’ I told him, ‘ It’s my ankle. ’ But he knew that. It was well-documented and we had discussed it. He then ordered me to get on the field. I said, ‘ Coach I ca n’t. ’ He did n’t call for medical attention. Instead, he shouted at me, ‘ YOU ’RE DONE ! ’ while he ran his finger across his throat. Coach was telling me that if I did n’t play hurt, then I was done with the Bucs.
I always thought I was the head coach, but I learned God is the head coach. He makes up the game plan. He decides when you get to play overtime. And when he says game over, it's over.
