"It is a greathonor, but also a tremendous challenge. It is sort of likefollowing John Wooden at UCLA after all his successes andchampionships. I don't know who followed John Wooden, which tellsyou something. Perhaps some of you in California know who coachedafter Wooden, but coming from Texas, I don't. I know who JohnWooden was, and I know who Dave Chatfield was. Someday, I hopepeople remember me."
