NFL Wide Receiver Coach Jerry Sullivan Joins 1973 Texas Tech Offensive Line on Sportsline [AUDIO]
On this week’s “Sit and Listen” Thursday on Jack Dale’s Sportsline, it was a ’73 class reunion as Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver coach Jerry Sullivan joined other members of the 1973 Texas Tech football offensive line.
We kicked things off with an interview with Jerry Sullivan. Sullivan was an assistant coach for the Red Raiders in 1973 and 1974. He then went on to become the wide receiver coach for NFL teams such as the San Diego Charges, the San Francisco 49ers, and most recently, the Jaguars. Sullivan shared his stories about the players, the season and his time as a coach at Texas Tech.
Also in the first hour, we spoke with the team’s quarterback Joe Barnes, who shared his memories of that fateful season. We also chatted with running back James Mosley who talked about his time on the ’73 team.
In the second hour of the program, we caught up and swapped stories with offensive lineman Tom Furgerson. Also in that hour, we spoke with offensive guard Dennis Allen, who shared his favorite memories of his time at Texas Tech. Wrapping things up, we chatted with wide receiver turned doctor Jeff Jobe.
The 1973 Texas Tech football team had a near-perfect 12-1 season, losing only to Texas, and topping off this remarkable season with a victory over Tennessee in the Gator Bowl.
