“It’s a tremendous honor to be selected to coach in this game. I want to thank all the coaches and players I’ve had the privilege to work with for their hard work and efforts. I’ve met many great people and made extraordinary friends coaching the game of football. This has made it very rewarding for me, and extremely enjoyable. I look forward to this game as another exciting opportunity. Most of all, I want to thank my wife Kimberly, my three children, Rachelle (15), Michael (11), and Megan (10), and my parents for their unending support.”
