Another branch on Coach K’s tree
If any Austin Peay fans are reading and wondering what you’re getting in James, well here’s what you’re getting.
You're getting a guy who is an extremely hard worker, who has never had a problem rolling his sleeves up and working hard. You’re getting a guy who is a first-rate big man’s coach, as we saw last season with the dramatic improvement Duke got from Vernon Carey. You’re getting a guy who has always embodied the word honor. No one has ever had a bad word to say about Nate James. His reputation is as clear as can be. And you’re getting a highly intelligent guy who knows what it takes to succeed in this sport or, really, anything.
We’re very sorry to see him go but equally excited to see what he does in Clarksville and the Ohio Valley Conference.
As you’ll soon find out, as the Crazies used to say every game, the guy is a badass. Congrats to Coach James and Austin Peay.
