Meet Jim Bernhardt, Bill O'Brien's right-hand man, confidant
Quote:
Consigliere is the word he used,” Bernhardt said, while sitting in his office glancing at his ever-changing to-do list. “My first loyalty and foremost is to Bill O’Brien. Someone might say that sounds like some type of hierarchy or something based on the university, but I do that with a very clear conscience because I know that he’s going to do the right thing.”
Quote:
“We’ve always had kind of an older brother, younger brother type of relationship,” Bernhardt recalled. “I facilitated – and if he wasn’t qualified he wouldn’t have gotten it -- I facilitated when he got his first big break at Georgia Tech as a graduate assistant with George O’Leary, who is an old friend. We have that relationship where it’s beyond just working together.”
Quote:
“The bottom line is this thing works because he knows I’m never going to lie to him,” Bernhardt said. “He may not like what I say, he may not agree with what I say, but he knows he’ll get an honest answer.”
