What attracted Pete to USC was the amount of control he was allowed. He has every element of control from how the program is shaped to the kids he brings in. Everything has Pete's fingerprints on it, and in his NFL experience that was sorely lacking. That was the ultimate element for Pete.
Mark Jackson quote
About Mark Jackson
To me, there are three things we all should do every day. We should do this every day of our lives. Number one is laugh. You should laugh every day. Number two is think. You should spend some time in thought. And number three is, you should have your emotions moved to tears, could be happiness or joy. But think about it. If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special.
