Since it seems like everyone needs a little warm-the-cockles-of-the-heart type story, here's an article in the Cleveland Plain Dealer about the relationship between Jack Miller's family and new Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski.
Jack's father, P.J., and Chudzinski played football in high school together and were lifelong friends. Before P.J. passed away from Hodgkin's lymphoma back in 2009, he asked Chud to help keep watch of his wife and children.
As the boys went through the college recruiting process, Chudzinski counseled them at every turn. They talked about the best fits. They talked about the best programs. Mostly, they talked about life and honoring the wishes of a father.
Matt Miller, who turns 18 on Sunday, has accepted a full ride to Wisconsin. The youngest boy still speaks to Chudzinski three times a week as he prepares for college. Jack Miller earned a scholarship to Michigan two years ago. He's expected to be the Wolverines' starting center next season as a red-shirt sophomore. He wears the No. 60 in tribute to his dad's uniform number at St. John's.
Now if you'll excuse me, I need to figure out who keeps dicing these damn onions in here.
