Devin Hester has had only one head coach during his NFL career, and now that's about to change. Or will Hester pack his bags and ride off into the sunset?
That's sure how he sounds in the wake of the Bears letting go of head coach Lovie Smith today.
“We already knew what the news was,” Hester said, via the Chicago Tribune.
“Just hearing it from him. The media, the false fans, you all got what you all wanted. Majority of you all wanted him out. As players, we wanted him in. I guess the false fans outruled us. I thought he was a great coach, probably one of the best coaches I have ever been around. He brought me in.”
Hester was clearly upset, adding “I don’t even know if I want to play again, man... You know, that’s been on my mind for two years now."
“It’s not (as much fun anymore). It ain’t. So, I have my workers’ comp papers in my pocket. See how I feel, go home and talk to my wife, my family. See where we go from there. I’ve got two beautiful kids, man, young. Two boys. A lot of stress has been on my mind lately.”
