What's the deal? I was expecting to see him back after being suspended in last years version. Now we have some old guy, sort of resembling Parcells. I know it's no big deal but just wondering if there is a specific reason?

Not sure if true but read he is not in coaches union anymore. Patriots coach is not in union.

Maybe union is wrong word , whatever it is that all the coaches except patriots coach falls under

EA Sports, which produces the game, says it has a licensing contract with the NFL Coaches Association. It pays the NFLCA for the use of the coaches’ name and/or likeness, according to an EA Sports spokeswoman. The NFLCA then doles the money back to its members, according to the association.

Hopefully this is something they patch. I remember when the NBA basketball games were released after the Sonics became the Thunder they companies had to release a patch to get the correct court design and stuff out.

its been the same with with belicheck for years, and payton for the past couple years. neither of them are part of the coaches association / union. therefore when EA acquires the license to use player names and coaches names every year, the nfl/unions arent able to license belicheck or payton's names or likenesses.

theyd have to invidividually license both of them, which i have a feeling neither are interested in.

Its cool. I like our new generic old chubby white guy coach. Seeing him "chat" with Drew on the sidelines was hilarious.

Looks a bit like Wade Phillips.

Guess I'll have to boycott Madden 25, which will be easy because I also boycotted the last 24.

Thanks for the explanation. I was pretty upset over it.
