In the second part of a two-part interview with KWTV-9, former Oklahoma State basketball coach Sean Sutton talked about the support he's received from his family and the OSU community since resigning on April 1.

Sutton discussed his affection for the school as both a player and a coach.

"I walk away from here with great memories,” Sutton said.

As he had done frequently throughout his tenure, Sutton spoke about the OSU fans, their passion and Gallagher-Iba Arena.

The interview, taped on Tuesday, was Sutton's first television appearance since his resignation under pressure. In the interview he again spoke about new coach Travis Ford, saying he thinks Ford will come in and do "a great job for them.”

Sutton said the last couple months have been full of ups and downs and he said he thinks he's "completed the cycle” of emotions. He also spoke about how hard his last season was on his entire family, calling it "a grind for them, and there was nothing easy about it.”
