On the new wolf statue
"When we were at BC we had an eagle put in outside the locker room for something to touch on the way out to start some tradition. But when we came here there was nothing except running out of the tunnel."

"We couldn't find a wolf last year to move down there so we ended up constructing a new wolf. So it will be the tunnel wolf."

On the temporary wolf put in last year in the tunnel
"We tried it. We got a wolf, but when I came and saw it.... that was the first and last game for that one. I mean we need a real wolf."

On the creation of the new wolf
"We talked about the height and the positioning and where we wanted it. So we created a new wolf – Fury."

On the music between the 3rd and 4th quarter
"I don't have any preference [on the music]. I'm not going to be a part of it so they can do whatever they want – just as long as they do something."

On what music he would choose
"Anything that you know the words to – and not rap."
