"Dennis Green created an outstanding environment for his players and I was privileged to spend four great years under his guidance in Minnesota. He was a real trailblazer and his impact on the game continues to live through the many successful coaches that he mentored. One of his phrases, or 'Denny-isms' as we call them, is 'We're going to plan our work and work our plan.' I still use that 'Denny-ism' today. Coach Green is going to be missed dearly by everyone that was lucky enough to know him."
