Detroit Lions Duce Staley has been authentic even on hard hits

“What you see is what you get” with Detroit Lions assistant head coach/running backs coach Duce Staley, both as a coach and as a man.

And if you don’t believe it, Staley will tell you for himself, as he did Tuesday before Detroit’s uniquely scheduled night practice.

“I don’t really care about it, honestly,” Staley expressed, when asked what his burgeoning stardom on HBO’s “Hard Knocks” has done for his profile as an NFL head coaching candidate. “I’m here for them (the players), to make sure they get better. I live vicariously through them. I still love this game. I still have that little burning lantern inside of me that wishes I could play, but I got to play through them. And what you see is what you get.”
