Former Hernandez Coach At UF: “A Good-Hearted Kid Who Had A Hard Time Saying No”

ahAs the media — and it appears police — close in on New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, one of his former coaches at the University of Florida has offered a bit of insight into the ex-Gator:


“There were always people that were trying to surround themselves with him that weren’t in his best interest and they were around him.  For him, it’s like anything else… He’s a good-hearted kid who had a hard time saying no…

He’s a lovable kid.  He’s always welcome in my house and he’s always called my kids and talked to them.  He’s a great kid, but since his father passed away the maturity part has been a little bit of a struggle.”


Hernandez — who signed a $40+ million contract with the Patriots last year — is very much a suspect in the murder of an associate in North Attleboro, a suburb of Boston.  Reports claim he destroyed a cell phone and his home security cameras earlier this week which is — to say the least — suspicious.

Reports this week have linked Hernandez to gang activity in his hometown of Bristol, Connecticut.  It is well-known that he also admitted to failing multiple drug tests for marijuana at Florida before the NFL draft in 2010.
