Instead he is the new hitting coach for one of two Yankees teams in the Gulf Coast League. He seems energetic about his new job, and even more excited that he and his wife Madeleine are expecting their first child at the end of March. It’s been a long ride from when I first met Drew at the Yankees’ minor league complex in the spring of 2001.
Remember when he was going to solve everything?
Parcells gave up on him too early IMO but the kid obviously didnt help himself by jumping back and forth between sports and from that article it sounds like football wasn't in his heart anyway. You can get away with that at the amatuer level but its nearly impossible to have success at the professional level bouncing around like that. Shame because he seems like a good kid and had all the raw talent in the world.
