* Morrissey: Matt Nagy Is A Breath Of Fresh Air; Now, Can He Coach?

The one thing you learn when a head coach gets hired in the NFL is that everybody loves him. He has no known natural enemies, never has had a cavity and, if a papal election were opened to married people, certainly would get some first-place votes.

We in the media, seeking to flesh out the man, interview his third-grade teacher, who reports that our guy took the Cub Scout oath more seriously than the other children. High school friends find deep meaning in the way he ate lunch in the cafeteria (''organized and slavishly on schedule''), and his first employer never before had seen anyone sort, collate and file the various rules concerning the break-room refrigerator.
