It's a terrific book, given all the interviews he conducts.
But to note, if Landry didn't invent the 4-3 outright, he was heavily involved in the defense from the beginning. Certainly he was the master of it with the New York Giants.
I have that book in my hands. It is always on my desk because I agree it is terrific.
Dexter Clinkscale is mentioned on pages 688, 689, 692, and 693. In none of those pages is this passage found.
I loaned out my copy of God's Coach by Skip Bayless and never got it back. If I had it, I could turn you right to the passage.
I promise, that is in "God's Coach."
