"We kind of had to find our own way of doing it," Orr said. "Sometimes the mistake some of us mid-majors make is it's not a cookie-cutter approach. You can't look at a Gonzaga or Butler and try to copy that and hope it works. We found we have to find our own niche and our own way and trust the coaching staff to figure that out. It's been a fun ride. It's amazing year after year after year it's another group of guys."
"Randy clearly embodies what Saint Mary's College is all about," athletic director Mark Orr said. "He is, obviously, an excellent basketball coach with a track record of competitive success and he has led our program to unparalleled achievement. But, he is also a valued and respected leader on campus, an impactful mentor of our student-athletes and a committed member of the community. I'm thrilled that we are able to sign him to this long-term agreement and look forward to him leading Saint Mary's basketball for the next decade."
