...and here's what Rick Majerus said about Coach B:
"I am very happy for Paul," Majerus said. "He did a terrific job for us. Paul is an excellent teacher of the game and an outstanding coach who will be missed by me, our staff and our players. Paul was a tireless worker. In a difficult situation, he excelled. Paul distinguished himself by his class and work ethic.
"ESPN is a great organization," Majerus said. "They call them the 'World Wide Leader' for a reason. Paul will fit right in. He has demonstrated the adept ability to identify and evaluate talent at a high level. He is diligent, determined, very smart and a self-starter."
