"I'm what's known as an 'over-communicator' so the players never have to wonder what I'm thinking or how I'm feeling. They know it's all about them. The staff is human, too. So don't mistake our kindness for weakness. So that's our approach. Always make sure they know what, how and why we're doing something. So win the day, win the week and win every game. I've never met a player or coach who practices to lose...when things don't go your way, we can either change what we're doing, change how we're doing it and/or change who we're doing it with."
