  • When asked about what he will do to excite the student body, Chambers said he will borrow and drive around on Coquese Washington’s golfcart and throw some attitude bands… whatever we’re allowed to do, we’re going to do”
  • Chambers on recruiting: “We have to tap into those relationships. We just have to go back to where people know you and people trust you” “…When people trust you, they’re going to send you their kids”
