Bill Curry Reflects on Coaching at Alabama, Lombardi
Former Alabama Coach and NFL center Bill Curry joined Inside The Locker Room Tuesday morning.
During the conversation Curry discusses quarterbacks calling their own plays including anecdotes on Tom Brady and Johnny Unitas, how the Miami Dolphins should approach Tua Tagovailoa's injury, and his thoughts on the new name, image, and likeness rules in the NFL.
"Well, I've got a bias, and I have to confess to it," Curry said. "I was active in the NFL Player Association back in the early '70s when we decided to strike against the NFL.
"One of the issues, too, was player likeness being used on NFL Films. The NFL Films were making hundreds of millions of dollars and the players were getting nothing in return. That was one of the issues. Players these days aren't stupid."
He also touches on the transfer portal, the idea of having a sole voice over college football, and the differences in today's game from his playing days, an interesting anecdote on Bart Starr and Vince Lombardi.
