SPORTS DIRECTOR JAY WILSON HAS BEEN THERE EVERY STEP
OF THE WAY AND HE JOINS US NOW FROM A RAINY TEXAS
HALL OF FAME
WELL, THOSE PEOPLE SEEM TO FORGET THE FOUR NATIONAL
CHAMPIONSHIPS HE WON AT U.W.
PLATTEVILLE IN THE 1990'S.
BUT NOW THAT HE'S IN THE FINAL FOUR, IT SEEMS BO RYAN
IS GETTING THE RESPECT HE DESERVES FROM ALL OVER THE
i am the same person that I was a few weeks ago a
month ago, so its maybe not what you think it is to
me because of how I got into the profession as a teacher
first in junior high school and then they gave me
a coaching job I want you to put it on to the players
and have it be about them I am very happy to be here
and roam the sidelines
I dont think we evaluate coaches on finals fours or
who made it we just know who can coach who is a good
guy who gets their teams better who cares about kids,
we know those guys if they made it to a final four
great, if they didnt taht didn't change my opinion
RYAN SAYS HE LOVED HIS TIME AT PLATTEVILLE.
HE LOVED HIS TWO YEARS AT UW-MILWAUKEE.
BUT ALSO SAYS WHEN PAT RICHTER CALLED HIM IN 2002
TO ASK HIM ABOUT TAKING THE WISCONSIN JOB-- WELL,
WE'LL LET BO TELL THE STORY.
pat richter called and it was the shortest converstation
of all time bo.
ya who is this...this is pat.
are you ready....you know i am ready and that was
it we drove to madison the next day we got some things
done got a chance to coach at the university of wisconsin
not to many people get a chance to go back to to a
school where they had been an assistant and we didnt
get to the ncaa tournament so I was very fortunate.
next question is on the left side
and that was the short version cal.
THANKS JAY WELL SEE YOU TONIGHT AT TEN
