New England Patriots RB Logan Thomas ‘came out’ to coach coach-speak

admin 0

Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens has been a big proponent of “come out” coaching in the NFL.

So much so that he’s done interviews with a wide variety of coaches and players, including Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Peyton Davis, Brian Billick and now Logan Thomas.

Here’s what Stevens told the media at a pre-draft workout: I like to give guys a chance to come out and say, “Look, I’m going to coach you.

I’m here to work with you.

You know what?

I love this.

I respect you.

And I love the process.”

Thomas said he was very pleased with his work with Stevens, who is a native of Boston.

And when asked how he thinks his experience with Stevens could translate to the NFL, Thomas said, “I don’t know if it’s possible.

I’ve never been there.

I haven’t coached in the league.

I have no experience in coaching.

I’ll have to find out how that works.”

Asked if he thought he would have been better off being a running back or an offensive lineman in college, Thomas replied, “Definitely.

I think I was better off in college than I was in the pros.

I was a better athlete than I am now.”

Thomas was selected by the Celtics with the 11th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.
