Hello Coaches, Friends and Colleagues,
Most of you have probably heard that I resigned from my position at Florida State University, and that my wife and I have moved to Costa Rica where we will live on our coffee farm. I have attached an announcement and some pictures telling a little about our story. It was very difficult to leave a career of 27 years in college athletics, and the FSU Athletic department that has been my home for the past 14 years and has treated me so well. I have been incredibly blessed throughout my career to be mentored by, and have worked with some truly remarkable people. There are far too many to name individually, but I would like to thank each one of you, whom with I have had the pleasure of working and serving student-athletes. You have made me a better strength coach and enriched me as an individual.
I will miss not being part of an athletic department, especially this Saturday! I will be thinking of you and wish you all good luck as you embark on a new season and academic year. I will be following the seasons, your success and cheering for the Huskers and Noles from Costa Rica.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if there is something I can help with, or if you visit the beautiful country of Costa Rica. Please keep in touch, you will always be able to reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
