Cowboys DC Kiffin: 'Everybody is on the same page'
MAY 11, 2013 3:20p ET
"Everybody is on the same page," Kiffin said after the Friday morning session of rookie minicamp. "You may hear this or hear that or whatever, I just know that I was impressed ever since I've been here with the way we handle our meetings, starting with ownership and Jason and the whole bit.
"It's been awesome. I don't make stuff up."
Kiffin, who was hired to replace Rob Ryan in January, was just as energetic while speaking with reporters on Friday as he was during his introductory press conference four months ago, certainly not seeming like someone who is tired of coaching.
The 73-year-old is in the process of implementing his 4-3 Tampa-Two defense in hopes of improving a Cowboys unit that ranked 14th in the league in 2011 and 19th in 2012, both years in Ryan's 3-4 scheme.
"Kiff looked great," Garrett said on Friday. "He's got great energy. He's got great balance. He's fun to be around. He loves football. He's very passionate about it. He's a passionate teacher. You see that in the meeting rooms. You see that on the practice field. He's seen a lot of football in his life. He's a very wise football guy. He has that bounce in his step and that gleam in his eye in everything that he does. Very contagious. I love being around the guy."
