After spring practice on Friday, Gary Patterson offered up a interesting quote.
Patterson's first words to the media addressed the recent drug tests by saying he was not going to talk about them. "What if I drug tested the whole media? Right now you have to be drug tested before you can come ask me questions” he said jokingly.
He went on to remind everyone in attendance that part of their role of coaches is to also be a parent of sorts, and that each student athlete affected is still someone's kid.
Patterson has handled the whole situation with a lot of class from the beginning, and told everyone “I’m going to worry about those 105 guys and move forward and make sure they learned a lesson and make sure we have a good football team because that’s what they pay me to do and raise good young men.”
Well said Coach.
