Should he be considered a Belichick disciple because of his playing career or do you have to coach under somebody to be part of their coaching tree? If so, would he be part of Urban Meyer or BOB's coaching tree?

 

The most common belief seems to be that he was most heavily influenced by Belichick and Patriots culture. This makes sense and would align with J Rob et al. 

 

FWIW, I think Vrabel is his own man because a super alpha CEO like Vrabes cannot be groomed. He is just born that way.

I would say he’s clearly learned more from Belichick than O’Brien, or at least learned enough from both to not fall into BoB’s direct pitfalls.

 

He’s literally the best branch from that tree if so.

 

I feel like he’s inherited the Belichick coaching spirit more than anything, but of course he asked Bill questions and paid attention as a player. He’s said that much.

You have to have been on their coaching staff to really be part of their tree imo


Not really the more I think of it. It’s disciple of, and so on, and that makes the branches. Unless we’re taking immediate trees. Small trees. 
 

Like is Fisher a Walsh disciple, and Gregg Williams and Munchak, or is he a Ditka/Buddy Ryan disciple, or is he both?

 

These are more like tangled vines, honestly. 
 

Horrible question!

Mike Vrabel is a fatherless tree.

Reading about Vrabel under a Urban Meyer is very interesting. Bill may have influenced him in his playing career and early on in coaching, but Urban seems to be the one who really jump started his rise from what I’ve read.

He was never a coach for Bill. He just played for him. Vrabel has traits but has his own ideas and creativity. Vrabel is Vrabel. As mentioned. He reminds me more of a less stoic Urban Meyer. I only know Urban when he coached the Utes.
