Memphis introduces Justin Fuente

The University of Memphis welcomed Justin Fuente to campus as the new head coach of the Tigers earlier today.

At one point, Fuente won the media over by saying that he has seen success at programs that don't necessarily "carry the biggest stick" and is going to use a similar blueprint for the Memphis program moving forward.

Fuente described the past 24 hours as exhilarating, even saying that after returning to Fort Worth, he put his interview materials away in a file and said "Well, that was fun..." and went into the office early to write thank you notes to the committee for the opportunity and he got the call later in the day. 

Those thank you notes are currently in the mail.

Video is quite entertaining, and definitely worth a watch.
