|ESPN.com: ACC||[Print without images]|
Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich
FSU offensive line coach Rick Trickett has been lauded by many as one of the top offensive line coaches in the country, and his latest contract extension shows the athletic department is among the believers in him. After all, he did transform one of the youngest, most inexperienced offensive lines FSU has ever seen into one of the best in the ACC. But former lineman Will Furlong has spoken out against his old coach, saying he doesn't think it's possible to have a good relationship with Trickett.
Trickett wisely didn't comment in the story, and Furlong went so far as to say that he wasn't the only player who felt that way. But Trickett's reputation precedes him, and he's well-respected by his peers. Guess we'll find out this season how much validity his comments have, or if Furlong was the lone disgruntled player. If the group sticks together, it should be the best in the conference.
