MD: Do you drink less now than before that happened?
BH: Sure. The reality is, I'm not 32, 35 years old any more. I'm 52 years old. I used to sleep four hours a night. I can't do that. There's a lot of things in my life that have changed. After I had the heart attack, and I'm on all this medication — I can't.
MD: There's a perception that because you don't have anything else to do you're going to load up recruits and take them in as a package to your next job. Is that something you've considered, and that you consider an important part of your resume for your next job?
BH: Look at my resume. Who would think I can't recruit? We've had three consensus first-team All-Americans ... who would think I can't recruit. The reality is, kids want to play for me.
MD: How frustrating is it to have to sit and watch for a year, when obviously that wasn't part of your plan?
BH: It really hasn't hit me. I've been really busy. I'm the busiest unemployed guy in the country.
MD: What's keeping you busy?
BH: I've been fishing a lot. I've been around my family. I've spent a lot of time around people I grew up with. I'm having fun.
MD: You had talked early on about visiting practices, that sort of thing.
BH: I have some. I went over to Northeastern and saw Ronnie Everhart ... not very much. After a while, I thought — I can do that when the snow's flying and it's cold.
I've gotten to do those things that other people take for granted and I've never really gotten to do. People have no idea how hard guys in my business work, how much time they put in, how much they're away from their families. Thanksgiving Day, for the first time since 1978, I think, we had Thanksgiving dinner just our family. It's strange. My kids were saying, "Dad, we miss the guys." Because that's all they ever knew. It's become so much a part of my family's life that doing what normal people do is not normal.
