Aki Collins Talks Marquette-Carolina, Coaching Carousel
In this interview with ZAGSBLOG and SNY.tv, Marquette assistant Aki Collins previews tonight’s Sweet 16 matchup in Newark between the Golden Eagles and 2009 NCAA Champ North Carolina.
A hot name in the Coaching Carousel, Collins also addresses his desire to one day become a Division 1 head coach.
“It’s definitely my goal to become a head coach,” he said. “The chips will fall where they may. If it’s this year that I get a job, great. If not, we’ll be back here next year and we’ll have a really good team next year at Marquette. And at some point in time, I believe I’ll be a head coach.”
