More on the players requesting Doherty to change

Following yesterday's <i>Daily Tar Heel</i> article, the <i>Raleigh N&O</i> this morning furthers the story with more quotes from Doherty and words from Manuel (who says he's decided to stay at UNC), Capel, Boone, etc.

"No question, the players are the most important people in the program," Doherty told the N&O. "They're the ones that play the game, they're the ones that we have to place the most value in and treat them properly. If, at times, they felt like that hasn't been the case, I want to know about it -- and fix it.

"To me, these kinds of things really make you look inside and say, 'OK, what am I doing right? What am I doing wrong?' I'm not going to sit here and say everything's perfect. I make mistakes. I'm going to make mistakes in the future.

"But I ask my players not to make the same mistake twice. I've got to do the same thing. As long as I don't do that, we'll grow from all of this."
