A third coaching staff has come out publicly to say they don’t support the court brief filed last week by the NFL Coaches Association, which sided with the players.
“I checked with our guys and not one member of our coaching staff had knowledge of last week’s brief filed by the Coaches Association prior to the news breaking,” Del Rio told the Associated Press. “None were consulted or involved in any way. This action was taken without approval. Heck, it wasn’t even mentioned to any of us.”
The NFLCA has good intentions and assistant coaches could use the protection a union would provide. But the NFLCA isn’t a union and they don’t represent all NFL coaches, which has led to some embarrassing moments over the last week.
It sounds like that problem was widespread.
