IJ: Did you always want to be a coach?

IJ: What was your favorite memory as a player?
RW: I played at New Mexico State so it was the in-state rivalries with the University of New Mexico. In the state of New Mexico those were the only Division I schools, so that made for a good in-state rivalry. In Texas, we have a lot of them. In college, those are the things I remember most.
