Here’s coach Flowers on his new gig.

“This is a great opportunity because it’s not like we’re rebuilding,” said Flowers. “We’re not coming into a program that’s 0-10, 1-9 and things like that. We’re 6-4, and we’ve got guys that are hungry, and ready to go compete for a championship.

“So, that’s what we’re going to do. One of our models is going to be everything, every day, and we’re going to work everything every day toward a championship.”
