went to Jerry Richardson and said; "Hey Jerry, I made your team relevant in one year, my first year, and I did it with what you had. Can you imagine what I can do when I get what I want?, what I can do when I get the players I want. But you have to understand, I can't do anything unless I get the players buy in and they won't buy in unless they know I'm in control." I need to tear this team down before I can build it up. I had a winning track record before I came to Charlotte and now I have a winning track record here in Charlotte. We're going to have rain before we get sunshine but that's okay because the fans are already used to it. They are already used to not having back to back winning seasons. Give me
the control I need to build what you want and our next winning season will be followed by a winning season. "
