Seattle Seahawks defensive back Richard Sherman is now a world champion after the team’s blowout win over the Denver Broncos last month in Super Bowl 48. However, as we know, Sherman is not one to forget his roots and where he comes from, which is why he recently spent some time at his alma mater, Stanford, and just couldn’t help himself in trying on his coaching hat with the players.
According to Cardinal head coach David Shaw, Sherman tried to be an innocent bystander at the practices, but he just couldn’t help himself in offering his expertise to the players getting ready for the 2014 college football campaign.
“He’s trying not to coach from the sidelines, but he can’t help himself sometimes,” Stanford coach David Shaw said. “Just the fact that he’s here, just the fact that he’s around, kind of reaffirms why some of these guys are here.”
What’s even more ironic about all of this is the fact that Shaw has yet to hire a secondary coach, so Sherman is actually filling somewhat of a need at the current time until a permanent coach is put in place.
In all seriousness, though, it’s always nice to see NFL stars to not only return to their schools, but have an active hand in what they’re doing as well.
