Two different personalities, veteran cornerback Tramon Williams said, via Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette.
Williams played under Pettine for a year when he was head coach of the Browns, so he had a preview to what’s coming.
From Dom to coach Pettine is totally different, Williams said. Two different personalities. Dom was just a laid-back guy. He commanded it with his experience and presence, but coach Pettine, he’s going to let you know. He’s going to let you know, but he’s been highly successful in this league with every team he’s been on. He has the resume to back it up, and you can see it in his attitude also.
Coach Pettine believes in football stuff, not schematics stuff. As a player, that’s what you love in a coach. If he tells you to go out there and do what you do, that’s what you love to hear from a coach. That’s what coach Pettine is really about.
