Are you relieved to hear that Bill Self is going to stay at KU?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on April 11, 2008
“Definitely relieved. I thought he may have already accomplished his goals here and be looking to move on to build up another program at his alma mater. I was certainly worried about it.”
“Yeah. I knew that he wouldn’t go. We have such a rich tradition, we sell out every home game and we’re a top five basketball team every year; whereas Oklahoma State is more in the middle.”
“Yes. I’m extremely relieved, because he’s such a great coach and with what happened with Roy Williams and Larry Brown leaving for more money, I was a little concerned.”
“Yeah, but I knew he would all along. I didn’t think he’d leave with all KU has to offer. There’s more tradition here, and we just won the championship. So I didn’t see any way he was going to leave.”
