He is of questionable character yet maybe he realizes this is the last
chance to rewrite his legacy.
He has to walk the straight and narrow and not, um, "mess" it up.
He has a BIG opportunity. He is back in college basketball when it appeared he may have received the unofficial death penalty. He has a chance to build Iona into a powerhouse like Mark Few has done at Gonzaga. Or he has a chance to build Iona up quickly and get one more "big fight" opportunity at a "major" program.
I think he is motivated to work and win as always yet he knows any small slip up and he "messes" himself.
