“At the same time, I felt like I was at the point in my career that I might have a chance at some opportunities and I wanted to explore those opportunities this year. When Colorado State came open, I had followed it a little bit because of (Jim) McElwain. He was an SEC guy and it intrigued me. So I said I was interested and it kind of went from there. The interest was there and it and just took off. It was the right fit at the right time and that’s what I felt in my heart.”
Good for him. And note that later in the interview, he still refers to Georgia as “we”. He’ll always be a Georgia guy.
