I really didn't think anything of it. I knew Miami was looking for a head coach to replace Alvin Gentry. And I knew it was possible the Heat would consider me for the job. There's a possibility when any NBA job opens up that four or five of us who are fairly successful college coaches and around the same age are going to get called. Roy Williams at Kansas. Kelvin Sampson at Oklahoma. Lon Kruger at Florida. My main man John Calipari at Massachusetts.

All these supposed "sources" are telling Bill Koch from The Cincinnati Post and John Fay from The Cincinnati Enquirer all these supposed things, and they weren't true. The ironic part is, they turned out later to be truejust after they were reported to have happened. Dave Wohl did call me. He asked if I wanted to sit down and talk, so I met with him one afternoon in Atlanta, and I liked the guy. I think he's a smart guy. I think he's got a pretty good grasp on players.

Not only is Pat a tremendously successful coach, Pat is great from a marketing standpoint, because he'll sell a lot of tickets. The truth of the matter is, I don't think I was the No. 1 choice for the University of Cincinnati job; I think there were a couple of other guys they wanted. I didn't tell UC, "If I'm not the top guy, I'm not taking the job," and I didn't tell the Heat that, either.
