"I do go into Winston-Salem. I go into every place in this state. I really do. There is such a misconception. I go in and I look at people that I feel can help us win now. We've recruited linebackers from Winston-Salem... they've gone elsewhere. I can't hit them with a sting gun."
"The fact that we don't recruit in this state.. talk about leading the country in total defense last year, and I did a terrible job recruiting in this state. Mario is from Richlands... I think that's in North Carolina. The other end, Manny Lawson, is from down there right outside of Goldsboro... I think that's in North Carolina. Tank and/or DeMario are from Fayetteville and Greensboro. The last time I looked at a map that's there. McCargo is from Virginia, and he's not too far from the North Carolina state line... I can keep going about that. The starting two corners last year were from the state, the one backup was from the state, and I do a terrible job recruiting in this state... just an awful job of recruiting in this state. I don't understand it, I really, really don't. Unless Fayetteville is in Florida, Richlands is in Ohio, or Goldsboro is in Arkansas. We recruit a bunch of people. I can't make them come here."
