Tomorrow, Matthew Mitchell will once against fill in as a guest host, not an easy task given the turnover and turmoil surrounding the UK Hoops program in recent months. Things seem to be back on track for the women’s program, and in turn, Mitchell posted a Facebook message thanking fans for an overwhelming show of support in recent weeks.
“We’ve been working hard the last few weeks in getting a staff in place and spending significant time with our current and future players. We’re very excited about the positive things that are happening in our program. Each and every day, we have been overwhelmed by the supportive emails, text messages, phone calls, letters, etc. I’ve read them and they have strengthened me more than you will ever know.”
Mitchell goes on to describe his love for the program and its fans, which he says hasn’t wavered since he first stepped on campus thirteen years ago.
“Since the moment I first stepped foot on campus as an assistant coach in 2003, I knew this place was special and different from other places I had been. That has never been more clear to me than the unwavering support we have received the past few months. From stopping me in the grocery to a simple handwritten note, your support has strengthened me, my family and our program.”
To read the entire note, check out Mitchell’s Facebook page. Then set a reminder to tune in to tomorrow’s show from 10 a.m. to noon.
This will be one you don’t want to miss.
