What’s It Like To Be Coached By Titans’ Legend Eddie George? ‘It Ain’t Fun’

Tennessee State head coach and Titans’ legend Eddie George played at running back in the NFL for nine seasons and set records the entire way.

George was the first-round draft selection of the then-Houston Oilers, after winning the Heisman in 1995, and won the NFL Rookie of the Year award in 1996.

He was the Oilers/Titans’ starting tailback through 2003, never missing a start, and made the Pro Bowl four consecutive years (1997–2000).

George assisted the Titans to a championship appearance in Super Bowl XXXIV. 

What is it like to be coached by George? Just ask Tennessee State running back Devon Starling:

“It ain’t fun, let’s day that,” Starling said. “There’s a lot of dummy hits, ball protection … him expecting greatness out of everybody …”


Starling said George expects the same from everyone — no matter the position.

  1. Eddie George appears to have more class than Deion while coaching HBCU. Deion is sorta clown like, always popping off about something. I’m sure he does a good enough job with his players and promotes his program but he’s a bit too opinionated for my taste.
