“Markus Paul was a leader in this building. He earned the players respect and attention because he cared so much and was a naturally gifted communicator — both on the personal and professional levels,"McCarthy ha detto. “He handled every situation, a volte con un sorriso e una pacca sulla spalla, ea volte con amore duro. Aveva una durezza innata in un lavoro che richiede quella qualità, and he was admired throughout the NFL by his peers and the players he coached.”

Ron Rivera might be on the opposite side of the field but he was affected by Paul’s death as well. Rivera and Paul were teammates on the Chicago Bears from 1989 per 1992.

“The passing of Markus Paul is a true loss to the NFL community and anyone who had the privilege of knowing him,” Rivera said. “Markus was a tremendous teammate during my time with the Chicago Bears and a good friend to me over the years. He was just a great man and will be missed by many.”
