Another aspect to Rich Stubler the much beloved Defensive guru from our 1986 Grey Cup year.
Reed’s coaching philosophy forced Stubler to bolt for Lions job: Eskimos GM Tillman
BY CHRIS O'LEARY, EDMONTONJOURNAL.COM JANUARY 6, 2012
Tillman said that Reed wanted to add a secondary coach to his defence
and to increase the focus in practice on fundamentals,
like tackling drills and technique work with defensive backs.
Stubler, Tillman said, didn’t want to do that.
“Rich ... is more of a system guy — and a darn good one
— and he wanted to keep doing things as they were done in 2011.
I watched Kavis work with the players in his secondary at practice here in Hamilton.
He was so concerned with preparing each of them to be comfortable and confident.
Like a good teacher, he believes you can't leave fundamentals up to chance.
He is forever the teacher. Good on him! I am glad for the success he is having.
