On whether he had hoped earlier in his career to get this job: "Every time I saw this job come open, in the back of my mind, I was hoping that one day I would have the opportunity to lead this program. I told Neil (Sullivan) this. For me, I love my alma mater. I want to see Dayton do well. Personally, I feel I want to lead the program. I want what's best for Dayton. I want to thank Neil, Eric, Tim, everybody that was involved in this, for believing in me and giving me this opportunity. I'm going to do everything in my power to continue the success Dayton has enjoyed throughout the history of the program and what Archie has done of late. He has elevated the profile of the program nationally. We're going to try to take it and build on it from there.
