April 6, 2012

Nick Bazzle said he knew it was time.

"The whole time I have been a coach, I've had coaches around me that have been older, and when it was time for them to leave or retire, I asked them over and over again, 'How do you know when it is time to leave?'" he said. "They always give the same answer: You'll just know."
