NEW ORLEANS (105.3 THE FAN) – The parade of coaches, players, and basketball legends continues at the Final Four radio row in New Orleans.

Coach Bill Frieder joined Elf to give his thoughts about the tournament. Bill coach at the University of Michigan (1981–1989) and Arizona State University (1989–1997).

As the famous story goes,  when Frieder announced that he would leave Michigan for Arizona State, then Michigan athletic director Bo Schembechler ordered Frieder to leave immediately, and named top assistant Steve Fisher as the interim coach for the tournament. Schembechler famously announced, “A Michigan man will coach Michigan, not an Arizona State man.”
