This is how you do it: East Stroudsburg coach Denny Douds called timeout with 13 seconds left in a game to announce his retirement after 43 years in charge of the Warriors’ football program. Then he shook hands with players and coaches, walked out of the stadium and drove off.

Douds tells PodcastOne Sports Now co-hosts Jim Litke and Tim Dahlberg the one stressful moment came when, “I looked up in the middle of the third quarter, and the gate I’m going out of, I think, is locked.”

Also on the show: Adam Greenberg discusses his two major league plate appearances — seven years apart — and why he’s running for office. Finally, AP NFL writer Rob Maaddi settles the Brady vs. Rodgers debate.

On the menu: Tacos. Lots of tacos.
