    Gattis On Locksley Comments: 'Ask Him Where The Game Plans Came From'

    https://michigan.rivals.com/news/mic...ksley-comments


    I have a tremendous amount of respect for Mike Locksley. He called every play there were never any other comments about that, Gattis said. Im 100 percent confident [I can do it]. Mike Locksley can say I watched him call every play, but ask him where the game plans usually came from?
    So Im fine with that. He did call every play, and Ive got a notebook upstairs with all the game plans written down in them. But Ive got tremendous respect for him, obviously.
    He called Locksley a mentor and added former PSU coordinators Joe Moorehead and John Donovan as guys hes also learned from. Being taught by coaches who helped develop ownership and entitled and empowered everyone helped shape him, Gattis said, and he plans to do the same with his staff.
    He also made it clear he's played a very important role in every offense hes coached for as a result.

    So, I wonder if it was Gattis who was distracted with the game planning......

    There is a reason that Saban limits press contact with these guys. They can't help themselves.

    Sounds like Gattis and Hairball are twin sons from different mothers. They deserve each other.

    WOW!! Gattis sure doesn't lack confidence, does he?
    so glad he's no longer on the Bama staff!

    Yep. Tell you what, they both better produce bigtime results this year or they will be changing zip codes by the end of the season.

    Guessing this is part of what Saban has been referring to as agendas at the end of last year.

    There's a reason Gattis didn't get the OC job when Locksley left. In a world of egos and career climbing, he stood out as in it for himself, as opposed to the team.

    He may be talented. But this sort of thing wears real thin real quick, and I doubt Harbaugh is exactly a hands-off kind of guy.
    You can't reason a man out of a position he didn't reason himself into.

    I've heard rumors ( unsubstantiated, mind you) that he was pretty arrogant...………….don't know, but it makes you wonder
