This week ESPN premiered a new series I directed called #withdad, revealing candid stories about fatherhood and raising superstar athlete children. A few weeks ago, I sat down with Clay Matthews Jr, former All-Pro linebacker for the Cleveland Browns. Clay Jr., the second generation of the storied Matthews family, considered the first family of football. He and I met up the previous week and with the cameras off, the man was as gracious and sweet as he appeared in our interview. This was a project very dear to me having lost my own father right out of college. In addition to a talented crew, everybody involved was great to work with – ESPN, Chiat Day, Optimum Sports, and Nissan. Special shout out to David Kraft of ESPN, who was a great ally and creative partner.
