I know him. .I thoroughly researched him along with our General Manager [Trent Baalke] And owner [Shad Khan]. For rent, feel good about his expertise in that position. So we fully questioned him. The higher the game performance, the higher the priority. In the last 10 years, of course in the state of Ohio, if it was not so important – you know my relationship with the coach [Mickey] Maroti in the state of Ohio – but it comes under the umbrella of the sports performance team from strength training room, physical therapy, sports psychology and nutrition. And I wanted to get the best of the best. “
