(WHAS11) -- The ESPN “Car Wash” is when a coach or athlete goes to ESPN's campus and participates in just about every forum from radio to internet chats to multiple TV shows. That's exactly what Mark Stoops did on Tuesday, July 23.
The first year UK head coach got a chance to sit in the big chair alongside Chris Fowler on “SportsCenter.”
The two talked about Stoops' fiery personality and now that he's a head coach will that personality have to take a little bit of a back seat. But Stoops said he knows there will be some challenges ahead.
“I believe the players will look at me and there’s going to be some tough situations,” Stoops said. “I know that going into this situation.”
Stoops went on to say that fire and intensity is needed to build a program.
Once again Stoops talked about the goal of the season is just to take steps forward within the program; get better and improve are phrases you will hear a lot this season.
