What has been the most challenging thing for you?
"Everything! Really the hardest part has been not having direct contact with our players. With the pandemic, our players at first were all over the world spending time with family. The NCAA and PAC-12 rules prevented coaches from working with players until just the last couple of weeks. I’ve really had to get out of my comfort zone to find new ways to communicate and make connections."
On the other side of that, what has been the best thing that’s happened from the season being postponed?
"The team feels safe. We sense that Utah Athletics and the PAC-12 have our best interests in mind. It has taken the pressure off of trying to play and travel in uncertain circumstances. It was so great that the NCAA has given the players a redshirt year. They don’t feel the stress of not having a full year count as one of their precious four seasons."
