Packers | Bates Coaching With Passion

Jeff Fedotin, of, reports Green Bay Packers defensive coordinator Jim Bates made his presence known this offseason with a demanding style, trademarked by his active coaching technique, attention to detail and booming voice. "That's the way I coach," Bates said. "I'm going to be after them and pat them on the back when they make plays and get after them when they don't." Said DE Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila, "He has such a passion about what he's trying to do. He's very hands on. Most coordinators I've had just sort of tell you what they want, but he can get down and show you exactly."
