    I thought the Ryan bros were ball boys during the Ditka era?

    You can kinda toss Payton in too. He played for Ditka in the replacement season.

    Are you apart of the coaching tree if you only played under that coach ?

    Would that make ditka part of the landry coaching tree or the halas?

    I count ditka as part of the landry coaching tree since he coached under landry and he did not coach under halas

    I don't think that's how a coaching tree works...

    but Ditka gave Jack Del Rio his start.

    I would say if you played or coached under someone that makes you part of the tree.

    I would attribute all of the defensive guys to Buddy then.

    yeah coaching trees are usually someone you have coached with. ditka's is looked at a bit differently due to all the former players who have become coaches.

    Coaching trees are where coaches coached under you as assistants. Thus they talked so much about Walsh disciples.
