Odell Beckham Jr. will love Pat Shurmur:
The NFL’s assistant coach of the year is preparing his coaching staff and player personnel for the New York Giants, and one player currently in the Super Bowl thinks Odell Beckham Jr. is going to benefit significantly from him.
New head coach for the Giants, Pat Shurmur, has a way with players, and creates bonds with them in a way that brings out their potential on the football field.
The Giants are looking like they could be 2017’s Los Angeles Rams in 2018… Keep up with YOUR team to ensure you don’t miss out on their greatness! Sign up to our FREE newsletter to hear the news FIRST.
Danny Amendola experienced this first hand:
“I feel like he relates well to the players,” Amendola said via the New York Post. “He has kids himself [Vanderbilt quarterback Kyle Shurmur] that are football players. I remember Coach Shurmur had me over for dinner one afternoon with another couple of our players, and just real personable, family-oriented, and he’s a great guy. And I tell him that every time I see him.”
It’s hard to imagine Beckham Jr. enjoying dinner with Shurmur and his family, but we can assume that it may be the case sooner rather than later. As a head coach, it’s essential to have good relationships with the players and create a rapport with them to grow respect. For players like OBJ, having a sense of trust and respect is essential, as his passion often boils over into the game. If he trusts his coach and respects him, you can expect that he will listen and respect the image of the organization.
Beckham Jr. has expressed his approval of Shurmur over social media, which should be a good sign moving forward.
