Now compare that to what David Shaw has to say about his ex-boss:
"I do not have a medical degree, I do not have a Ph.D in psychology or psychiatry. Jim is out there, Jim is who he is," Shaw said. "There's no hiding it. Everybody's seen it; this is who he is. He drives people, he pushes people, he is the most competitive person on the planet. It's just who he is.
"He's going to rub some people the wrong way. He's going to find a way to win football games, because that's what he does. Some people are going to wear out (from him). Jim says that himself; he has a tendency to wear people out at times. You get the good with the bad. What you get from Jim is 100 miles an hour from day one."
This does not sound like an endorsement of any sort.
