    Best Of: Onside Kick After Safety ! ! ! Only Dick Lebeau

    Best Of: Onside Kick After Safety ! ! ! Only Dick Lebeau

    Jason Buck and Scott Mitchell of Rivals talk about a man they both worked with for the NFL: Dick Lebeau.

    Both Jason and Scott played for Dick Lebeau at the Cincinnati Bengals.  Even today, he picks up the phone for them.

    Lebeau is like Clint Eastwood.  He's very cool but can get action-packed when needed.  He was a pro bowl player in the NFL as a great defensive back.  He had 62 interceptions in an era where they didn't throw the ball.

    Scott played for Dick Lebeau when he was a defensive coordinator.  The head coach Bruce Coslet just left.  Totally walked away.  So they made Lebeau the interim head coach.  Usually, that would be the kiss of death.  Lebeau made it work.  Scott remembers when he called an offside kick from a safety.  Only Lebeau would know how to do something like that.
