Harvard Law School professor Stephen Cohen said in an interview with ESPN that he has never seen an athlete in his 20-year career who has never been involved in a case of concussions.
“I’ve seen many guys who have had injuries and then have a career and they’ve never been able to play again,” Cohen said.
“And that’s not the case with any of the players on this team.
We’ve got some guys that have had concussions that we’ve been able as a coaching staff to identify, but they’ve also been able through that and the process to overcome those injuries, get better, and be productive in the NFL.”
Cohen, who is currently the head coach of the Boston College Eagles, said that his coaching staff is working hard to improve the players in their care.
“This is a very challenging time for our team and this is a group that is so good.
The players, they’re really strong.
And this is their responsibility to take care of each other and get better.
It’s not just me, but everybody on this staff.
And that’s where the job’s at.
The job is to keep these guys safe.”
Coan is the fourth head coach in college football history to be fired by the school after the beginning of the school year.
The other two coaches who lost their jobs in that span were former Michigan head coach Brady Hoke and current Alabama coach Nick Saban.
Cohen has not played in a game since being fired from his position as head coach at Harvard in 2015.
