NFL Coach Dan Reeves Backs Newt Gingrich for President
On Tuesday, less than 48 hours after the Super Bowl, veteran NFL coach Dan Reeves -- who coached three teams and lost all four Super Bowls his teams reached -- backed GOP presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich.
“He is the most experienced candidate and the one who can take out Obama,” Reeves, who coached the Denver Broncos, New York Giants and Atlanta Falcons, said of Gingrich.
“Newt’s tough and you have got to be tough for a job like that -- just like a football coach,” Reeves added. “You will get second-guessed a lot, but you have to know what you are doing and do what’s best for the country.”
"I am honored by the endorsement of such a motivating leader," Gingrich said. “Coach Reeves led his teams to great success, and I hope to do the same."
