Hey man, ynow what I look for is enough speed to keep up with the WRs in the league, but also the hands and instincts to break up the pass or make the interception.  That's the key.

I like the sounds of that.

Obviously defensive backs are your specialty, but how good are you at finding talent in other areas? Front seven or on offense for example.

Thats...a fair point.

I would like to offer you our minor league coach position. The hope is to have some young defensive talent down there. What would you say to a 2 year deal worth $1 million?

Excellent glad to have you on board. I will let you get situated.

—————

Ashley, if he’s still available, can you get me Harold Bergstrom?

—————

Good afternoon, Mr. Bergstrom. I wanted to talk to you about our Assistant Coach position. We have a few young offensive linemen, and I wanted to bring you on board to work with them and get the most out of them. They are talented, just perhaps need the expertise of someone as yourself to unleash their potential.

What would you say to a 2 year deal worth $1 million a season to be the Assistant Coach/Offensive Line Coach?

Thanks for letting me know. Good luck.

—————

Alright Ashley, if you can could you get me in touch with former coach Bernard McCarthy?

—————

Coach, my apologies for not doing this sooner but everything started happening so quickly after the Impact Bowl.

Anyways I just wanted to thank you for all that you did for this organization. You helped build this up from nothing and turned it into a legitimate two time champion. You helped build this dynasty. And for that I am forever thankful to it. Together we planned and put a hell of a team on the field every year. It’s sad to see you go, but sometimes, you just know when it’s time, and I understand that.

Again, thank you for everything. You will always be a member of the Rapid City family.

Thank you, CJ.  Hopefully we'll get to see each other again one day, if you choose to do some sort of retirement ceremony for me at the stadium.

Once I finalize everything, I will make sure to let you know. For now, I will let you go and enjoy retirement. You’ve earned it.

————

Ashley, if he’s still available, could you get John Lee for me?

————

Mr. Lee, pleasure to speak with you. I’ve got an assistant coach vacancy and I’m looking to bring in someone who can help our offensive line. We’ve got some young talent there and I’m looking for someone who can help bring about their potential. You’ve been on some championship winning teams, so I know you know what it takes to win. Does this sound like something you’d be interested in undertaking here in Rapid City?

Man, these other teams sleeping on me, but damn.. I just landed in the best team in the West, with a legendary secondary coach as my head coach, a legend in his own right at corner at the DC spot... and a former DB as the minor league coach?  I love it.

Tell you what boss, looks like we're hitting at $2MM per season at this stage in the draft, but if you give me 500K in signing bonus on top of it, I'll sign for 5 years instead of 3, because I want to be here in Rapid City.

We were shocked you were still there at the pick, and we couldn’t let you slide any farther. It’s a great spot to land for a young corner, that’s for sure. Lots of experience to learn from.

As for the contract, the 5 year deal sounds great to us. I will get the paperwork filed. Welcome to Rapid City, Willian!
