Bills coach Sean McDermott moved by Penn State's wrestling title
March 29, 2017


Penn State wrestling coach Cael Sanderson should expect a phone call in the not-too-distant future from Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott, the former high school wrestler from La Salle High School who spent more than a decade as an Eagles assistant coach.

"I had our video guys tape it last weekend, the [NCAA] finals," McDermott said at the AFC Coaches Breakfast today. "I was at the NCAA basketball tournament, so I didn't know if I'd get a chance to watch it. ... And I watched it and I was tearing up, because you know what the young men have put into it with the preparation and dedication to the sport and you look at their bodies and they're warriors, just animals, in terms of what they put themselves through. And they're hugging their coaches.
