“The hiring of anybody taking over a bad team that has limited talent and needs definite additions at key positions, you have to be lucky and fortunate that the players who are there can buy into the system and give it 100 [percent] every single night.

“Everybody thinks that it’s supposed to come from somebody else other than what’s inside of the guys doing the job. It doesn’t matter what I said. As a player, you have to decide this means as much to you as anything in life because it’s what you’ve chosen to do.”

“They are adult men and professional athletes” who must “hold themselves accountable to a certain standard.”
