A: I've always been involved at Tech, gone by the basketball camps, practices, one-on-one meetings with the head coach, going to games. I go as much as my schedule allows me.
Q: What’s your impression of the team right now?
A: The impression is just work in progress. This is coach [Brian] Gregory's first year. ... It's just a rebuilding year, a year where we lost some good players last year and the year before was the one-and-done [Derrick Favors]. So now we're just trying to build right now and trying to get ourselves re-established with blue chip-type players. That's what Tech is going to need if we're going to win.
Q: Have you spoken recently with Bobby Cremins [who took an indefinite leave of absence from College of Charleston in January]?
A: I spoke with him. ... He told me he was extremely tired. I know Bobby; he gets emotionally attached to whatever he's doing. At his age, you've got to be careful with your emotion and stress level and your blood pressure.
Q: Do you think he’ll retire?
A: I could be wrong, but I think personally he's probably leaning towards retirement, but he did not tell me that.
Q: How do you look back at your time at Tech?
A: All I have is positive things to say about Georgia Tech. If there's anything I can do to help Georgia Tech be successful, that's what I'm here for because they provided a great education for me, and the four years I spent at Georgia Tech were four of the best years of my life.
