The Butcher, The Baker, The Candlestick Maker
I’m not worried about TV, not worried about the crowd, not worried about the pageantry or the ambiance of what the tournament is about. I’m humbled by it all. Extremely grateful for my wife and the sacrifices that she makes and for our four children, growing up as sons and daughters of coaches is very volatile and extremely emotional.
A country kid that just hung in there. Hang in there, hang in there, hang in there, throw a good pitch, throw a good pitch. The butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker, show up and go to work and do it every day no matter what’s surrounding you. That’s really hard, man.
You got to be a lion chaser to be married to me. She’s tougher than all them kids we play with. It’s really humbling, really humbling.

March Madness gives us a lot. Cinderella stories to great (if not slightly odd) postgame interviews like this.
