I don’t see myself as a coach. I am a leader who happens to coach losers in first weekend upsets.

I want you to develop as a player, but not so much that you have enough talent not to be bent to my will. I want you to develop as a student, and I want you to develop as a human being, because no one in the Association will want your lack of skills. My life isn’t about winning meaningful games – not any more. That’s why my card is American Express.
