Whisenhunt Sees Pat Tillman Jerseys on NFL-USO Coaches Tour

Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt is part of the NFL-USO Coaches Tour in Iraq and Kuwait. He is on the tour with Texans coach Gary Kubiak, Jim E. Mora and his son, Jim L. Mora, both former NFL coaches.

He’s met a number of Arizonans, he said, and several troops from various places have brought out their Pat Tillman jerseys for Whisenhunt to see.

“I think there’s a tremendous amount of things that open your eyes and give you a sense of a half a world away,” Whisenhunt told Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic. “You read about it, but it doesn’t strike home.

“A lot of places over here are bleak, barren, and the weather conditions aren’t good. And the way they have to live, how cramped it is. You’re amazed at how resilient they are and how focused they are.”
