"I spent all my time with the players and coaches. The players used to call me 'Duke’ because of my name. I watched game movies and sat in on team meetings and at that time knew every assignment on the team, offense and defense. I don’t have time to do that anymore. And I’m not that close to the players either. They call Mr. Mara now.”
