Coach Morland, I just wanted to say thanks for the great experience last weekend. You and Coach Stephenson put together a great conference and I'm very fortunate that I got to meet so many great coaches and learn from some of the best in the profession. I hope you guys have a safe and productive summer. Look forward to further talking with you.

Hello Chris - We have only 6 graduate student interns this summer and 5 of them are going private sector. Very unusual situation. We may have had an undergrad apply for the position but I am not sure. Let me know if you run across anyone. Hope all is well at NC State.

Things here are going really well...keeping really busy, but our athletes are really buying in and getting better. Hopefully I'll get some time to come over to state again later this spring. Definitely going to try to get there for the bball clinic. Hope you're doing well and training is going well too.
