Another coach with nice things to say about UNB
After the UNB-Maine game, as quoted at Vreds.ca
Coach Whitehead had only good things to say about the Varisty Reds after the game. I'm really impressed with the composure that UNB plays with. It's just great playing them. There's no garbage either. It's all clean. Everything is hard hitting but clean. Just a great rivalry I think we have growing now. Geographically it's a natural. The mutual respect among the coaching staffs really helps. Gardiner is just a fabulous coach, a great person, and I just have so much respect for him and his staff and what they've been able to do Roger Shannon, the whole group. Their recruiting is exceptional.
And they'll be back at the AUC before too long.
You know (Maine assistant coach) Dave Alexander is actually a UNB grad. We have a lot of connections. Most of us have family from the Maritimes, myself included on my Mom's side of the family. We'd love to keep this relationship going and hopefully every five years we can come up (to Fredericton). We went up a few years back and we're anxious to do it again.
