Don’t look for Terrell Davis to follow the Rod Woodson route from NFL Network to coaching intern to full-time NFL coach.
Davis has done the first two legs of the journey, but an internship with his old boss Mike Shanahan last summer made him realize that the life of the NFL coach wasn’t for him. Davis was asked by a reader in the Denver Post if he’d ever re-join the Broncos.
“Not as a coach, definitely not as a coach. I did an internship with Mike [Shanahan] and the Redskins last summer and I knew after a week and a half that it wasn’t for me. I think I knew that going in, but I wanted to make sure,” Davis said.
It’s one reason why we respect players that turn into coaches. You have to really love football to accept a job that pays a fraction of the money for double the time.
“I appreciated the opportunity, but the hours are very long. I had heard coaches talk about how they stayed watching film long after the players all went home. . . . Man, I have seen it now,” Davis said.
