An interesting article in the Indy Star told how to assure yourself of a job in the NFL. Be the son or daughter of the head coach or owner. Bill Belichick of New England has his son, Steve, as a coaching assistant. Jeff Fisher of the Rams also has his son, Brandon, working as his defensive backs coach.In the case of Marvin Lewis of the Bengals, his son Marcus is also a defensive assistant. Andy Reid, the coach of the Chiefs, hired his son, Brit, as a defensive line assistant. Lovie Smith of the Tampa Bay Bucs brought his son Mikal in as a safety coach. Not to be out done, Mike Zimmer of the Vikings, has his son, Adam, as his linebacker coach.Pete Carroll of the SeaHawks has two of his sons working for him. Nate is a wide receiver coach and Brennan is an offensive line coach. Finally Mike Brown of the Bengals put his daughter, Kathy, in the position of chief negotiator for player salaries and she is also their business manager. How is this for nepotism?
