Quotes from the video:


“In 1984, that Spring, the Boston College job was open. So I interviewed there and was offered the Boston College Head Field Hockey and Lacrosse Coach there.”

“I was offered the job down here 36 years ago.”

“I knew coming back here was my dream job. It was like coming back home, especially growing up in Philadelphia. Coming back here was very, very special.”
