Jarrett Stidham ‘like a coach’ in his approach
“He’s like a coach,” Malzahn told NESN.com. “He came in here, and he’s like a gym rat. He’s in the film room, he’s studying, he’s asking questions, protections, what-ifs. He’s that guy. The fact that he was able to learn under Brady for a year, I think is a great situation for him.”
Stidham’s offensive coordinator for two years at Auburn, current Troy head coach Chip Lindsey, has a similar view.
“I think what Jarrett does really well is he watches and pays attention,” Lindsey told NESN.com. “That year he spent last year doing that, I think it’s going to be extremely beneficial to him.”
Jarrett Stidham has gotten a lot of attention -- and praise -- this offseason. According to a couple of his former coaches the young quarterback has the mental approach to take full advantage of the opportunity he should get this season in with the Patriots.
