Former NYG Head Coach Jim Fassel Raised $1 Million for 9/11 First Responders

NEW YORK (77 WABC) Former New York Giants head coach Jim Fassel joined Bernie & Sid in the Morning to describe his whereabouts on the morning of 9/11.

Coach Fassel was able to see the Twin Towers burning from the roof of Giants Stadium. He raised $1 million dollars for the first-responders through his Jim Fassel Foundation.

Fassel said New Jersey commuters would park their cars in the Giants Stadium parking lot and bus into New York City. The following morning, the coach said many of those cars were still parked. Those were the cars of people who had perished from the attack.

Fassel told former Mayor Giuliani, who was the sitting Mayor at the time of the attacks, that he and the Giants would be there for whatever the city needed.
