    You're right, it doesn't seem like the writer picked up on that.

    One thing I keep forgetting is that Vollmer is actually 26, a bit older than most second-year guys. He started at college when he was 20.

    It's also hard to believe he wasn't invited to the combine.

    If I were starting a franchise I would start with Dante. He has been with the Patriots from 82 – 89 then 91 – current. Can you imagine 1 coach surviving that long under that many head coaches?

    No one wanted Vollmer. I remember the cries. Look what he did with Neal. Dante is great

    Fortunately BB has huge respect for the one-city career assistant coach. (That's how his dad was portrayed in Education of a Coach.) So it probably was easy for him to accept Dante rather than having to have one of "his guys".

    It also probably helped that Dante is an amazing coach too :D And BB also worked with Dante when Parcells was coaching.
