Good story about Stotts:
After Reading up a little bit about Terry, I wouldnt mind if he was our coach. He definitely has a lot of coaching experience. I still think Kaleb should get the job since he already has it, but I think either one is fine. I just didnt know much about Terry and so after reading up on his background, I realized he had more exp than I had previously thought.
