Chan Gailey - Mr. Nice Guy

Ran across this nice article about a reporter's interaction with Coach Gailey.

Gailey's accessibility also reflects poorly on coaches who often don't show that common courtesy. Included in that group is Gailey's Gator Bowl counterpart, West Virginia's Rich Rodriguez.

Some could say the next time Rodriguez returns a call will be the first time.

In that regard, Rodriguez could stand to learn a lesson from Gailey, apparently a humble man who takes the time and makes an effort to cooperate with media members even during one of his busiest times.
