Great Izzo Quote

Tom Izzo is the Men's Head Basketball Coach of the Michigan State Spartans. He is as great of a person as a coach and always gives credit where it is deserved and accepts most of the blame himself. Here is a quote I found in an interview from last season. "If people take ownership in something, you have a better chance to be successful. If players think they are simply doing something for you or the school they will do it, but it is not ownership. I take the same approach with coaches. You cannot ask a guy to work 18 hours a day if it just benefits you. I believe if they trust in themselves and have ownership, they feel better about themselves and they do a better job." Players == Employees Coaches == Managers
