Bill Khayat lived in Detroit, Atlanta, Baltimore and Detroit again before he turned 9. Bob Saunders was 12 when he had to endure the pain of everyone at school knowing that his father had been fired. And yet, Khayat and Saunders both decided to follow their fathers into the grueling and precarious business that is coaching in the NFL.
"My mom [Karen] about passed out when I told her I was going to be a coach," said Bob Saunders, 30. "She didn't want me to do it. She knew how hard my dad worked and how many hours he put in. In order to do this, you have to love it or you won't get anything accomplished."
"When I got my foot in the door, I knew that I had to work my butt off constantly so people saw that I deserved to be there and that I knew what I was doing," Saunders said. "Because I'm a coach's son, I think maybe I have to work harder in order to prove to people outside of the organization who just see you as a name."
