What advice would you give to Josh Holliday as a first-year head coach?

He knows what he's doing. This is one of those things that was made for him. He was groomed to do this for a long time, and probably at this place. Having watched him over the last seven or eight years, you get to see a kid that's worked his way through the college ranks and done a lot of great things, and I'm excited for him.

Do you see yourself still managing 20 years from now?

I don't know. It's fun for right now, where I'm at, what I'm doing. Who knows how long. I don't think these jobs are made to last forever. Guys come and go, and it's one of those things that for players too, I think they probably need a fresh voice at times, to have that change. You try to go as hard as you can and have as much fun as you can do it. And whatever happens, happens. I love where I'm at. I love the place I'm at as far as the city and the team, so I hope it lasts a while.
