It was an amazing moment. He came up to me and told me “Congrats.” And he’s a great coach. He got the best out of his team.
I felt like the right thing to do was to take him into the locker room and allow him to talk to the team. Because I think he wanted to talk to the team, but he didn’t want to stop the celebration.
Yes. I walked in with him in the locker room. So, I had the people stop the music and stop the champagne. And he was able to talk to the team and congratulate us.
We congratulated him, too, and wish him luck.
“I don’t want to take away from the experience.
I just want to come in and congratulate you guys.
Because you guys deserve it.
I am thankful for the experience.
You guys made me a better coach.
And, you made us a better team.”
