FAMOUS QUOTES about Garet 'Jerry' Reichow

Garet 'Jerry' Reichow Frank Gilliam - Link to source
Jerry and I knew each other since we were 18. He had called me a year before, asking if I was interested in a scouting job. I was coaching at Iowa, and after we all got fired, he gave me another call. I came to visit. It was kind of a natural, because I played for Bud [Grant in the Canadian Football League], I played with Jerry and I played against [Vikings GM] Jim Finks. They got me up there to talk, and it was like old home week. It turned out to be a very good marriage.
