“We’re all devastated by (the passing of Coach Drake). I really can’t think of any other appropriate words,” said Tomlin. “Our time and attention in the recent days has been spent in support of the Drake family. Miss Sheila and Darryl’s daughters and extended family – many of us have had an opportunity to spend time with them through this. They’ve been amazing. In making arrangements and adjusting, we’ve tried to be as supportive organizationally to them as we can in what is a very difficult time. Professionally the loss is significant, but personally it’s even bigger.” — Coach Mike Tomlin today.
