UT wants someone that understands what came before them. It brings cohesion. It can be back to a national power in a lot of things. We don't just want to be competent. We want to be excellent. UT can be a National Power at not just 2 or 3 sports but many sports. If u do this job with those who love the place it helps a lot. Have you talk to Fulmer? Yes we have talked a lot. I was with him a week ago but we haven't talked much. I think highly of cpf. We worked together there for so long. Very thankful for time with cpf. It's very important to be successful at sports. We want sports to be a great ambassador for the school. Sports get marketed the most. We must collaborative not against each other.. I don't hide from the word winning. How do you act and behave is winning. Players are competing in classroom too. EA asks how bad do you want the UT AD job... DB responds: I want to first say how grateful I am for UT. I lived on lake Loudon Blvd for 26 years. If asked to interview, I would love to. It would mean the world to me. But I want everyone to know how great UTC has been to me."
