Former Atlanta Falcons head coach (1990-1993) Jerry Glanville joined The Morning Show with John Fricke and Hugh Douglas to talk about joining the Canadian Football League as the Hamilton Tiger-Cats new defensive coordinator. Glanville said he never really quit coaching. He’s coached coaching staffs the past 15 years.

He said June Jones, of the Tiger-Cats, gave him the opportunity to come in as the defensive coordinator this season. Glanville talks about the differences between the NFL and CFL, specifically when it comes to the defensive side of the ball.

Glanville said Johnny Manziel has yet to sign with the Tiger-Cats [Hamilton has the rights to Manziel if he chooses to sign in the CFL>.

When asked about Manziel and if he could get back on track, Glanville said: “Jerry Glanville and June Jones would never give up on deep-ball accuracy. [Head coach> June [Jones> worked him out, threw all deep routes, and [Manziel> hit the guy right on the money ... Other stuff, he’s got issues. We’ll have to clean that up and try to make him behave. If they don’t behave, you move on.”

John asked if he believed Manziel when he said he’s changed:

“If you can’t take the relapse, don’t attempt the rehab," said Glanville. "It’s a hard fight. You can’t put on a magic hat and become somebody you’re not.”
