"It's a time to reflect and thank people, look back and be grateful for all of the good things that have happened in my coaching career, I really can't think of anything bad, I mean the wins and losses, they are what they are and things like that but all of the friendships and comraderie that we have among ourselves and among our players is really special it makes good."
