“In the moment of truth, we took care of business. That had to be fun for America to watch and for our fans to watch. You don’t get many opportunities like that and have it come out the way it did. It’s been an emotional day for me, for the players and coaches, for the fans. We knew it would take everything we had in this game. Everything was so crucial. I’m just humbled and thankful to be the head coach here and be able to enjoy what happened here today.”
