Yeager? When did that happen..I missed it.
What I heard was Crennel in Cleveland along with Mo Carthon as OC, offered him the rb coaches job, but he turned it down.
He was seeking second third fourth and more opinions about his surgery..then he felt he had to retire, was released, and it was too late to get the Cleveland job. Someone else had been hired.
I never saw anything about the Boys offering him a coaching position, In fact, Jerry very abruptly and clearly answered "NO!" when asked if Anderson would be coaching here.
It was said the team was upset Richie took so long to make his decision about his spinal surgery. Not that he turned a position down...he reportedly enjoyd living in the area.
It seemed like he left here on a sour note, which is too bad if true, because he was a real asset those two years in many ways, and I'd hate to think of him on the outs with either Bill or Jerry.
