Lovie Smith Wants His Coaches To Run The Show

98.7 The Fan

Florida International head coach Ron Turner joined Fan Interference to talk about his upcoming camp in Tampa, and his time here in the Bay Area under coach Greg Schiano.

Before coming to Tampa Bay, Ron was a coordinator under Lovie Smith in Chicago. On offense, Lovie is a coach that allows his coaches to do their job when calling plays. Lovie does prefer to lay down a formation of what he wants to do with his personnel, but does allow the people in place to do their job. If he saw something he did not understand, he wasn’t afraid to ask, but also wanted the perspective of the players and coaches about what they thought was best.

When Ron was in Tampa Bay, he said that he did not see this slide from Josh Freeman coming. He worked with Freeman for a year, and never thought that Josh was going to be an issue. He did battle with some inconsistency, but for a while Josh was really tuned in before he would lose focus.

In his time with Greg Schiano as coach, he had a lot of respect for Greg and his relationship with Josh was very good and professional. Josh would always meet with Coach Schiano on the Saturday before the game, and would go over their game plan for Sunday.
