The NFL’s reigning Coach of the Year would not elaborate on the content of those discussions — ‘those conversations are private,’ he told reporters.
‘He’s a good young man,’ Daboll said. ‘I think any decision that we make, we’ll do it together. Joe and I will sit down, and we’ll talk about it, and it’s gotta make sense for everybody.’
