Jaguars Coach Has His Priorities


Bianchi, Mike, The Florida Times Union


Running off at the typewriter. . . .

Jacksonville Jaguars coach Tom Coughlin never misses the chance

to honor Jay McGillis, the courageous former Boston College

safety who died of leukemia four years ago while Coughlin was

coaching the Eagles. As you might expect, Coughlin, who hosted a

charity golf tournament in honor of his all-time favorite player

a few months ago, was ecstatic recently when he learned that a

Gators safety Lawrence Wright after making a diving interception

during practice the other day: "I'm Michael Irvin without the

cocaine." . . . I have Electoral College as my preseason No. 1 .

. . Now that Don Shula is in his new position as Miami Dolphins

vice chairman, he'd better learn to say, "More cream in your

coffee, Jimmy?" . . .

The official drink of the 2000 Olympics in Sydney will be

Coca-Koala. . . . In the more luxurious Joe Robbie Stadium

suites, you can tune in on JimmyCam and get a constant close-up

view of His Hairness on the sidelines. I'm afraid it's true. . .
