A young Cincinnati Bengals’ fan sends back an Odell Thurman jersey after the player’s arrest. He wasn’t expecting a personal response from the team’s coach.
We picture NFL coaches hunkered down in their offices 18 hours a day, too busy to do anything but draw up game plans and answer questions from the media.
That’s not far from the truth, but score one for Bengals’ coach Marvin Lewis who stepped up to help a young fan turned off by a player’s indiscretions.
Lewis not only sent a new piece of memorabilia —he offered a few words of advice, too.
