Head Coach Jimmye Laycock on Tomlin

“For a school like William and Mary — that’s nationally known academically — to then produce a student who played football and is now coaching in the Super Bowl, that’s not the kind of thing you would normally think of here. It shows you that it’s a place of possibilities. Anything can happen.”
