TJP: Marty’s offense, how do you think it plays into what Jeremy Kerley does on the field? How does it enhance your skill set?
JK: I love it, man. It gives me the freedom to go out there and be myself, be Kerley running around back at TCU. It allows me to play the game. That’s what I love about his offense. I think that’s what a lot of people love about it. It gives you the opportunity to go out there and be creative and be yourself. I thank him for that, and I hope we stay together for a while.
TJP: Watching you guys when Mr. Johnson came into the locker room to announce that Rex was coming back, I don’t know that I have ever seen that kind of party about a coach. What is it about this guy? Why do you guys love him the way you guys obviously do love him?
JK: I think it’s more of a respect factor. In life, you kind of respect the people that are real to you, and who don’t sugarcoat to you, they tell you how it really is. At the end of the day, a lot of guys respect him for that. I, myself, I definitely respect him for the way he loves the game. He obviously loves winning, and when you got a guy like that, it’s natural that everybody is gonna want to be around him. He’s a good coach, and outside of coaching he’s a good person to be around.
To put it in words, he’s a good dude.
Thanks very much to Jared Winley from the Jets PR staff for getting us together, and thanks to Jeremy Kerley for taking some time to talk to us.
