If you listen to a head coach do interviews for a certain number of years, eventually you become good at knowing what’s coach speak and what isn’t. I don’t know at what point I was able to do that with Frank Beamer, but at some point it clicked for me and I just knew what quotes were important and which could be discarded.
Obviously nobody has reached that point with Justin Fuente yet. He’s been on the job less than a year and he hasn’t even coached his first game. He seems pretty even-keeled in each of his interviews. He plays things close to the vest, but he seems to be honest at the same time. But there’s no way to know at this point.
That being said, a couple of quotes have caught my eye recently.
