“With most of the players that I’ve coached, I have a very good relationship,” he said. “Colt and I have a good relationship. It’s not a bad relationship. I think there’s certain times when you’re a coach and sometimes emotion can get to you. Maybe you step back and say, `Boy, I would rather have handled it that way rather than this way. But I think the job as a coach is to tell the players what to do and show them how to do it and really not accept any excuses. It’s an emotional game.”

He added: “I’m a high-energy, up-tempo guy. I expect perfection. I know that’s not possible all the time but I think we need to all hold ourselves to a high standard, to really setting the tone and expecting the highest detail and highest execution from ourselves.”
