All Darren Pang

from Jim Gintonio of the Arizona Republic,

Q: How hard is it separate yourself from players, as far criticizing them?

A: “The first couple of years were very difficult because I left the team in Chicago that I played with, I was in the locker room with the players all the time, and we even had the same coach, Mike Keenan, so I knew what the players were going through with that coach, and that was very difficult, watching practice and watching the players.

“But when I was moved nationally to ESPN that really helped me out because I got to in the other teams’ locker rooms, and I got to see the games a little bit more from the management and coaching side rather than just being the players’ side. I’ve enjoyed that part of it. There’s a big difference between being a player and looking at it from a coach’s side.”
