“Well, I had a conversation with the owner and understood what the direction that the organization wanted to go. Not to re-plow all that ground, because, on to a great adventure here at the University of Michigan. And the number one thing I look at is, I had the time of my life. Will be forever proud to have done the things that we did in San Francisco; the coaches, the players. Going to be friends for life, and allies for life. Just had great relationships that were made there. Now one week into the job here at the University of Michigan, we’re plowing ahead. It’s great, it’s even better than I remember it.”
