New Rutgers Coach Chris Ash Meets the Press

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Watch new Rutgers football coach Chris Ash speak with the beat writer contingent after his introductory press conference. Ash hits on a variety of topics including his recruiting pitch, building a staff and the interview process.

Chris Ash is ready to get to work with a busy Monday of phone calls and meetings. Before Ash turned his attention to the Rutgers staff and 2016 recruiting class, he spoke with beat writers about his introduction and the start of his head coaching career.

"Our mission statement, it won't include anything about wins, it won't include anything about championships," Ash said. "It's going to include and talk about the environment we're going to create to develop these players mentally, physically and spiritually to reach their full potential and to be successful in life after football, and if we can get that ton, the wins will come.

 "I can't tell you again how excited I am to be here. I can't wait to get going. They were trying to talk to me about the press conference and all the things with today. I just want to go recruit and have an opportunity to get some better players or more players in our program and get us moving in the right direction."
