When a team outgrows individual performance and learns team confidence, excellence becomes a reality.
Believe deep down in your heart that you're destined to do great things.
We shall act with good intentions, but at times we will be wrong. When we are, let us admit it and try to right the situation.
Besides pride, loyalty, discipline, heart, and mind, confidence is the key to all the locks.
Success without honor is an unseasoned dish; it will satisfy your hunger, but it won't taste good.
You have to perform at a consistently higher level than others. That's the mark of a true professional.
Publicity is like poison; it doesn't hurt unless you swallow it.
Its the name on the front of the jersey that matters most, not the one on the back.
Losing a game is heartbreaking. Losing your sense of excellence or worth is a tragedy.
The will to win is important, but the will to prepare is vital.
I don't think I deviated from what I'm all about and what I thought was important. Whether you want to call that a legacy, or whatever you want to call it.
To teach an academic subject is certainly not easy, but compared to coaching, it is. We can say 'two plus two is four' to every kid and be sure that we are right. But in coaching, we have to literally get to the soul of the people we are dealing with.
You need to play with supreme confidence, or else you'll lose again, and then losing becomes a habit.
My thing was play as hard as you can, don't be stupid, pay attention to details, and have enough guts in the clutch that you're not afraid to make a play. Some things I thought were important for a young man to know.
What is a coach? We are teachers. Educators. We have the same obligations as all teachers, except we probably have more influence over young people than anybody but their families. And, in a lot of cases, more than their families.
