“ I LOVE COMPETITION, AND I LOVE CHALLENGES
MY WAY IS JUST DIFFERENT
The first thing I had to do was hire people and organize my staff, and now that we’re through that stage, we’re in the implementation phase. We’re still getting to know each other, but it’s been good.
What are you most excited about this season?
The challenge. I love competition, and I love challenges. I am extremely proud of our group of guys — they’ve come a long way since I met them almost five months ago. We still have a long way to go, and it’s going to be a very challenging year, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be good.
Q What are the challenges you see this team facing?
Do you want to do everything?
Yeah, you want to know everything that’s going on. And you can’t do it. There aren’t enough hours in a day. So it’s been a learning experience. I’ve got great people here who are helping me out.
INSIDE COLUMBIA NOVEMBER 2014
Getting to know each other, putting in a new system, and making some different demands. The three coaches that came before me — Quin Snyder, Mike Anderson and Frank Haith — were all very successful, and they all did it in different ways. So I’m just doing it a different way. It doesn’t mean their ways were better or worse — my way is just different.
