Fleming on Diaco; Diaco on Fleming

SBT has an entertaining piece on Diaco's coaching style where Darius Fleming reveals the following about Diaco:

"He's a really energetic guy," linebacker Darius Fleming said.

And Diaco's energy is matched only by his quirky personality.

"We'll just be going to 11 on 11," Fleming explained, "and then he'll just bring up some kind of story that he feels relates to the topic. But we don't. So we'll just go along with it. Just like, 'yeah, yeah, that's really good coach.'

"I mean, he'll talk about turtles. He'll talk about scorpions.

"I think he might have read a lot of books when he was younger or something like that.

"But he's always got a story for something."

Apparently this was enough for Brian Kelly to allow Diaco to give an on-camera interview to address Fleming's statements. Diaco's response to WNDU is up on youtube:

I have no idea how the Frog and Scorpion fable would be useful in a football context, but Bobby D works in mysterious ways.
