cooleyinterviewEvery year at BIG EAST Media Day, Jalen Daly of “A Daly Dose Of Hoops” always compiles a great list of quotes from all of the coaches around the conference. Also, he is kind enough to allow me to post his list of Ed Cooley quotes in order to share with Friartown. You can follow him on Twitter @DalyDoseOfHoops.

Here are Coach Cooley’s quotes:
