Kerry Coombs, the current secondary coach at the Titans is receiving a lot of praise from three of his former defensive players. Many of the players at his new home also have a great perception of the coach. This revelation comes in the light of a recent interview on the players done at the NFL Combine.
The players who previously worked with him have expressed a lot of praise for the coach. They have particularly cited the coach's zeal and energy as some of his key strengths. Jerome Baker, the linebacker at Ohio State says that the Titans players will benefit a lot from the great attitude of their new coach.
The Ohio State players also reckon that the coach is not just a great inspiration but also a good instructor.
According to another defensive player, Jalyn Holmes, coach Coombs has been a great example. He argues that the unending determination and confidence that the coach displays was enough to get the players through all the challenging days.
The new secondary coach joined the team after being sought by Mike Vrabel, the head coach. Coombs has had a great career progression having served as an assistant for five years at Ohio State. He then proceeded to the coordination and defense department in mid-2017. The coach is familiar with his roles as he has enough experience as a coordinator. Coombs will now work with Vrabel, a coach he has a previous working relationship with at Ohio State.
The head coach at Tenessee is also full of praises for Coombs and it is not difficult to see why.
Coombs oversaw a couple of players being taken in during his time at Ohio State. These include the cornerbacks who characterized the 2016 lineup. Gareon Conley and Marshon Lattimore are two of those who were taken during the NFL Draft. They both proceeded to other teams at different periods - Conely to Oakland and Lattimore to New Orleans Saints. The 2014 initial round of the NFL Draft also saw Bradly Roby go to the Denver Broncos while Eli Apple went to the New York Giants
According to Coombs, he has no intentions of changing his methods. He says that over the time he has been active, he has come to appreciate his style. He also notes that there is a certain expectation from his players that he must maintain at the NFL. Coombs does not hide the fact that he is passionate about his job wherever he is doing it. For Coombs, it is not the details that excite him but the overall journey.
Coombs has spent over two decades as a high school coach. He has also coached at the university level and Sam Hubbard, an Ohio State defensive lineman has a high regard for the coach.
Hubbard has a great history with Coombs that stretches back to his college days. The coach not only signed him up but also imparted a lasting impression on him. Hubbard now believes that the same energy that the coach injected into the game at the college level is the same energy he will bring to the NFL.
