"Coaching, like teaching, is a matter of creating an environment where students can learn. A great teacher is one who helps the student grow to the point where they no longer need the teacher." - Bud Grant

*A side note: Bud's grandson is a freshmen on our football team. When he first came in last fall, I asked him if his grandfather had any words of advice for him before he left to come to Grand Forks. He replied, "Not much, just 'keep your damn mouth shut'."
