Players Talk About Floyd, Next Season at UTEP
Wednesday, March 31: One of the hardest things to do in sports is to change, either it be teams, coaches, or cities. That's what UTEP Basketball players have had to face, and it seems like they are ready for a new change in El Paso. Tim Floyd was introduced as the UTEP Head Coach on Tuesday, and the players will have to adapt to his style of coaching. Junior Guard Randy Culpepper said, "Who wouldn't want to play for Tim Floyd. He has an outstanding resume... Iowa State, New Orleans Hornets, USC, the Chicago Bulls." Isaac Gordon added, "We talked amongst each other, and we're very excited about the opportunity. The guy has been around many programs in college and the NBA, the guys knows what he is doing. We respect him automatically." Julyan Stone chimed in "Change is hard, no matter what level it is, but you got to be able to move and grow and i think him coming will help us as players and a person grow."
