Jeff and Jim Mora

Looked up Jeff on Google News hoping to find out if there'd been any progress with the Doug Pinnick project, and instead came up with this little bit of randomness from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution...
For those who don't know, Jim Mora (Jr.) is the new head coach of the NFL's Atlanta Falcons, a Washington State native, and a former defensive coordinator with the San Francisco 49ers (one of Jeff's favourite football teams): > Sports > Falcons
Breadth of a salesman New Falcons coach Jim Mora has the NFL resume, but his best quality might be his powers of persuasion

Jim Mora's been on the job a little more than a month, and for all the Falcons fans who asked, "Who?" when he was hired, a profile finally is emerging. It's clear that he's not your grandfather's coach, nor your father's. More like your son's.
After all, how many other NFL head coaches are tight with the guys in Pearl Jam?
"[Lead singer] Eddie [Vedder] and [bassist] Jeff [Ament] are huge sports fans," Mora said. "Jeff had a 49ers sticker on most of the guitars he uses in concerts. I've already sent him two Falcons helmet stickers. He'll put them on there now."
It was brother Michael who introduced Mora to Pearl Jam. Now an architect, Michael became friends with bassist Ament years ago when they worked together in a Seattle restaurant (he designed the musician's new home).

(Note: I definitely remember the phase when Jeff had the New Orleans Saints sticker on his bass, but I can't remember him ever showing love for the Niners in that way... Hmm.. )

A little more on the Jeff/Jim Mora connection from yesterday's USA Today...

"Mora is a friend of Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament and has been backstage at a dozen or so of the group's concerts."
