"Rodrick Williams Jr.'s 10-month old, 2-foot-long savannah monitor named "Kill" gets the RB some strange looks when they go for walks together."
Angelique Chengelis (DetNews) spoke with Mattison...here's a few interesting quotes
"The biggest reason is Brady," Mattison told The News on Tuesday night. "I know he's going to win. Michigan is a special place. The longer you're away from it, even when you're in the NFL, it's still Michigan. Every Saturday when we're in our rooms relaxing before the Sunday games, I always watched Michigan. That doesn't leave you."
But he said Baltimore coach John Harbaugh helped make it an easy decision.
"He has so much respect for Brady," Mattison said. "He came into my office and said, 'The job you've done here is unbelievable, but I would understand if you went to Michigan because it's Michigan. I would understand because it's Brady Hoke.'
"Don't worry about me recruiting," Mattison said with a laugh. "Recruiting is all about where you're at. If you really believe in the school you're at … it's easy to sell a place like Michigan."
"He's one of the best recruiters out there — he's a helluva recruiter," Irons said. "I'd put him in anybody's house and he'll sell them on Michigan and will be genuine about it."
Great to hear, glad he's made it back on the team. Hurray for more linebackers!!
Oh, and for those of you with Twitter accounts better do what Webb says and follow him, wouldn't wanna make him angry...
I dont really know much about Mattison other than he coached previously with Hoke and has been the dc at Mich, ND, and with the ravens. However, how much of his success with the Ravens is because of him (they have just a little defensive talent on that team)? What were his defenses like at the college level?
*Just to note...I am every excited about Mattison as our new dc
Let it be known from this day forth on MGoBoard.
Greg Mattison is to never be called Gerg Mattison.
May the name die forever with the new regime.
