Tubby Smith – New Memphis Men’s Basketball Coach

“You don’t become successful unless you surround yourself with good people. They have goals, an ideas, and beliefs that are at less equal to yours or greater.. Or you are not gonna be able to grow.”

—Tubby Smith Quote from Memphis Presser


2 things I learned from the University of Memphis’ Tubby Smith Press Conference Today:

1) He was himself.. It wasn’t about saying the right basketball buzz words or catchy phrases..
2) He has been in this profession long enough that he knows what it takes for him to be successful:
– Has a coaching philosophy
– Assembles a staff of future head coaches that HE serves and they share the same vision and terminology
– Recruits the right players for HIS system
