"It was quite interesting," Okoye told Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle on Tuesday about the experience. "They're not as heavy as I thought."
"His background in NFL Europe was something that really appealed to me," Okoye said of Tomsula. "Obviously, he's worked with guys that have hardly played the game before. ... He sees potential in me and he's made it clear that he wants to take me all the way. That's something I'm really happy about. I can't wait to work with him day in and day out."
"I'm not going to put any limits on myself," Okoye told Branch. "Nobody would have predicted when I was 18 that I would be the British record-holder and an Olympic finalist."
