Revis: “Reuniting” With Wannstedt “Awesome”April 22nd, 2013
There were all kinds of happy Bucs feelings flowing from Darrelle Revis today. First, at his introductory news conference, Revis talked about deciding to come to Tampa Bay because of all the great players on the roster and, in his opinion, the Bucs already were a playoff team without him.
Revis later lit up with love when he joined Steve Duemig for a one-on-one on WDAE-AM 620. Duemig asked Revis about the attraction of his former college head coach at the University of Pittsburgh, Dave Wannstedt, who now coaches Bucs special teams.
“It’s awesome,” Revis said. “It’s reuniting with [Wannstedt], coach [Jeff] Hafley as well, Definitely awesome.”
Hafley was Revis’ position coach at Pitt and now is a Bucs assistant defensive backs coach.
Revis also added that he enjoyed playing against Greg Schiano’s teams at Rutgers and there was a mutual respect there. He and Schiano, per Revis, were “just talking about family and the [Tampa Bay] area nothing about football,” when Schiano picked up Revis at a Tampa airport on Sunday.
Revis also revealed that he’s a Florida resident already, living somewhere on the east coast.
