NFL.com’s Chase Goodbread observes that former pro QB/ESPN analyst Sean Salisbury, “has experience when it comes to conduct issues, and the fallout that can result from them.” Hey, so does Rae Carruth, but unlike Salisbury, he’s not been hired to mentor suspended Texas A&M QB Kenny Hill, who Salisbury dubs, “a young man that got off the beaten path.” And who’d know more about beaten paths?
“Teach him how to approach the off-the-field stuff better. And to work with him on the field. Fix his mechanics, get him going. This is a critical point for him. I spent time talking to the family (Tuesday) night, hopefully we’ll start this weekend. If not, we’ll start early next week and carry it into the off-season and work his butt off,” Salisbury said. Salisbury added that Aggies offensive coordinator Jake Spavital is aware of the arrangement.
Salisbury touched on his role as a mentor for Hill, as well.
“… Just some things, understanding exactly how people look at you — and it’s unfortunate because that position is looked at different off the field and on. You may want to go have three beers in a bar. Unfortunately three beers to you looks like eight beers to somebody else and they can’t wait to tell people.”
