Quote: “I could not be more excited to join the athletics staff at TAMUSA. I had a great situation at OLLU, and so it was going to take a special place to get me away from there. TAMUSA is that place. The administration as well as everyone else working at TAMUSA have a tremendous vision for where they want the university to be and, perhaps more importantly, are aggressively pursuing that vision. I am looking forward to contributing to that cause.”
