Charlie talks about the new contract | by Jay

Mike Frank of Irish Eyes has made available this free video of Charlie's press conference today. Great stuff -- check it out.

"Anytime people put out stories that are unsubstantiated...they have to be addressed sooner or later. And I think the best thing to do was to make it sooner rather than later, and get it out of the way. We no longer have to worry about that being a distraction...

"When I took this job, this isn't just any job for me -- this is my alma mater. The thought of people thinking that I was here for a short-term fix, those types of things affect me. I think it's very important for me to be loyal to this University. They stepped up and hired me, and I thought that I should reciprocate."
