“He was my first quarterback coach at Glenville State College,” Rodriguez said. “I had him for about like three months. I paid him 1500 dollars. He makes that a minute now. Jimbo, he was a great player himself, I mean, phenomenal athlete. I knew he’d be a great coach and, he’s one of the best there is, without question. other than this week, I always root for him because I think he is special.”
