NFL Lockout Day #34: JaMarcus Russell Is Fired By “Life Coach” John Lucas

Is it an indictment against a person when their “life coach” decides to fire them?

This is the life of former Oakland Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell.

According to Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports, Russell and life coach John Lucas parted ways after the former NBA head coach asked his student to leave Houston.

Lucas worked with Russell in an attempt to get the former number one overall pick ready for the upcoming NFL season.

The two began working together in September and continued to do so despite Russell coming up short in workouts with the Washington Redskins and Miami Dolphins last fall.

Despite trying to turn his life around after a July arrest for possessing codeine syrup, Russell appears to be back to square after his latest mishap.
