Why Joe Sacco Has Been A Success

from Adrian Dater of the Denver Post,

What has been the rookie coach’s secret of success? It takes a village to build a good team, of course, and others deserve credit for Colorado’s resurgence — starting with general manager Greg Sherman’s midnight phone call to Craig Anderson when the free-agent season began.
