A: "I pretty much knew, I knew he was going to still be on board. That makes it good because we don't have to re-learn a whole new system. It always makes it tough when you bring new people in. There will be a couple of changes here and there, but for the most part I think we just need to learn from our mistakes — as players, as coaches, everybody — and I think now with him having the job, the actual title, he'll be able to take a deep breath and we can start really moving forward into what he wants his program to look like. ... He's a real outgoing guy, he's real close to the players. He's not gonna push you down, break you down or swear at you, but he'll get on us, he definitely will. He'll get on our case. But he's a real positive person and he believes that the more we are positive toward each other the better outcome we'll have. So that's a good thing and it works. He's real big on the little things. It's something I've learned being in college is you do all the little things right and it adds up to the major things in your life. He's done a good job with us on and off the field. I just hope that we can get it together to where we start winning games and everyone else will be happy."

Q: WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO PERSONALLY AND AS A TEAM TO MAKE IT BE A SUCCESSFUL SEASON NEXT YEAR?

A: "For me personally, the biggest thing I'm working on is my leadership, just trying to get everybody on board and everyone doing the right things and doing everything we can to make ourselves better every day, whether it's the offseason, the summer, whatever we're doing. And as a team, I think it all starts with everyone taking accountability to themselves and all of us wanting the same thing. How good do we want to be? It's going to be up to every single person on the team individually and how we're going to follow the coaches and execute our assignments. But in the end, I think hard work is big and I think, after ending the season with a win, which is big, and by winning two of our last four games, it gives us some momentum. Once we learn how to win, we're going to be a really good team. We had games where we looked good and were just a couple of plays away from winning those games — we definitely competed. So once we learn how to win, we're going to be a lot better team."
