Aikman: Not Sure Tice Will Be Successful As OC
Sports Fan Insider
(WSCR) As a person, Troy Aikman will tell you how great Mike Tice is, but as an offensive coordinator, that’s a different story.
While Tice has never before assumed the role of offensive coordinator, Aikman has a feel it isn’t going to go well for the Bears.
“I really like Mike Tice a lot. I really have a lot of respect for Mike as an offensive line coach and in his years there in Minnesota,” Aikman told The Mully and Hanley Show. “I’ve just not seen offensive lineman come in and be offensive coordinators and be successful. We’ll see how it works out, but this is a passing league. Mike Tice wants to run the ball. … Can you win? Yeah, you can win. But if I was a quarterback, I’d want to be playing for someone who understands the passing game about as well as anyone else around the league.”
