To relevant media outlets:
I would like to rescind my latest comments about conference expansion. I have been very stressed lately about this whole situation and I was running at the mouth when I should have been mum.
A couple of assistant coaches from the football program sauntered into my office the other day and were quite persuasive in enlightening me on a new approach. I now have the utmost faith in how Athletic Director Tom Jurich and President Ramsey are handling the situation. They will do what is best for the University of Louisville. I plan on retiring in a few years and will finish out my tenure as the Cardinals head basketball coach in whatever conference they deem is best for our school’s future.
I would like to thank the AD, President, and most of the fans for sticking with me during my recent philanderings and appreciate their support. I would like to rededicate my public soapbox towards this concept. I will keep my mouth and cybermouth shut about further developments until The University makes an official announcement. Please do not ask me anymore in regards to this sticky situation, or you will receive a “no comment”. I have at least one more championship to bring to The Ville before I retire because The University and its loyal fans have paid me enough money so that my great grandchildren can lay on a beach somewhere in the year 2035.
Be sure to check my next blog next Thursday on how I have been catching up on recruiting because of wasting time talking to my buddy Andy.
Go Cards and Go Big Ea… er … just Go Cards.
