I think we all knew this was going to happen someday, I thought it would be 3-5 years from now though. I know for a fact that the AD knew this was possible and have had it in the back of their mind for a few years. It’s one of the reasons we paid Lake so much, Jen was not happy about paying that much, but they knew he was the successor if Pete was to leave soon. And here we are, he left soon.
I am so thankful for Pete. He has brought on some of my favorite memories of my life, him doing this shows how principled he is.
I am so excited for Jimmy Lake too. I love him as a coach and feel he will bring great energy to the program. Can’t wait to see what stamps he puts on it in the next few months.
