So desperate for money, what has Sapp decided to do? Write a tell-all book, of course.
And what’s type of tell-all book gives Sapp the best chance to make a ton of money? A tell-all book full of him ripping all of his former teammates and coaches, of course.
The Tampa Bay Times has the excerpts:
On Wyche, his first head coach: “Sam Wyche and I never did arrive on the same planet. … Wyche thought you motivated people by making snide comments, by belittling people. … So it wasn’t a surprise his coaching staff was disloyal. We spent the whole season watching defensive coordinator Rusty Tillman trying to sabotage Wyche so he could get the head coaching job.”
On the Bucs coaches he played for: ”I always said that Tony Dungy put the damn cake in the oven, and then Jon Gruden came in and put the icing on it. Of course, Sam Wyche couldn’t even get the mix out of the box.”
On Kiffin, the former defensive coordinator: “I always believed Kiffin (blitzed) so much because he wanted the glory; it made him feel like a great defensive coordinator.”
On Johnson, the receiver: “Among the biggest problems we had on that 2003 team was Keyshawn Johnson. … It wasn’t a big secret Keyshawn didn’t fit into our locker room: he came to us from a different football culture, and he never could make the adjustment. Everything was about him.”
On quarterback Trent Dilfer: “Dilfer … basically was an interception waiting to happen. There were times we practically pleaded with him, ‘We know you’re not going to score a touchdown, but please, just don’t turn it over.’ “
Sounds like something many people will buy. Which is exactly what Warren Sapp needs right now.
