This was a great article I read through MgoVideo's twitter...
"Fisch’s journey hasn’t always been smooth sailing. If anything, for a small stretch, it looked like he wasn’t going to have much of a career at all.
A freak heart condition struck a 26-year-old Fisch in 2003, causing him to have emergency open-heart surgery to repair an aortic dissection (a tear in the largest artery of the heart). The events nearly ended his life, much less his coaching career.
But it also changed him for the better.
“I think there were some reality checks, but I’m not sure I went the right way with that,” Fisch said, cracking a smile. “Some people would say that would cause you to slow down, but it caused me to speed up. I took on the mindset of, ‘I might not have 60-70 years.’"
Fisch hasn’t taken the normal road to NFL coachdom, but the travels are marked with similar traits as his colleagues.
Namely, perseverance and good ol’ fashioned hard work, characteristics he’s displayed since he packed up and enrolled at Florida to pursue his dream of coaching.
“I was very motivated,” Fisch said as he described his 18-year-old self. “Perseverance was the No. 1 trait that I had then and still have now. If you want to take on a challenge and having to do it from ground zero, the only way to do it is by fighting through it and persevering.
“That’s what I did at 18 and I haven’t stopped. That won’t ever change.”
His colleagues have taken note. Seahawks offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates, who worked with Fisch when both were assistants with the Denver Broncos, raves about his comrade’s “hard-working nature and through that, his understanding of the game.”
Mike Shanahan, the head coach of the Broncos when Fisch and Bates worked there, told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune in 2009 that Fisch is “driven.”
“Look at his background, how hard he's worked,” Shanahan said. “Everything he has done, he's done to get himself to be a head football coach. Very few have that kind of commitment."
The whole article is worth the read.

This is a very complicated case. You know, a lotta ins, lotta outs, lotta what-have-you's. And, uh, lotta strands to keep in my head, man. Lotta strands in old Duder's head. Luckily I'm adhering to a pretty strict, uh, drug regimen to keep my mind, you know, limber.

Are you serious?? He still won a national championship, regardless of whose players. It happens everywhere, look at Auburn this year, OSU in '02. No one calls it John Cooper's national championship. He won 5 big ten titles, was ranked in the Associated Press Top 25 for all but nine of his games, and won four straight bowl games at one point. Not to mention hes an all class person as shown by the many stories above. Just because Braylon is an idiot doesn't mean you have to hate on Coach Carr.
