Marrying a coach:

“Our anniversary is June 30. You'll find every (football) coach is married in late June or July.”

Describing Luke in one or two sentences:

“For me, he's a wonderful husband, a wonderful father. I don't think football coach when I look at him. Being a husband and a father sums him up for me.”

On handling criticism:

“You kind of bite your tongue and move on to the next thing. Everybody has their opinion. We don't really get the paper. My kids can't watch the news. Usually, we're pretty sheltered from things.”

Children’s reaction to Dad becoming head coach:

“My oldest, he gets it. He's 9. He loves football; he loves all sports. But to them it's not that different. Daddy has always been a coach; he's still a coach. What's the difference? It's not that big a deal.”Will she go to road games?

“I'm going to try to go to as many away games as I can as long as it doesn't interfere with the kids' schedules. My parents have offered to come and stay, kind of man the troops so I can go support the Buckeyes.”

How she juggles schedules:

“I've always been more of an organized person. My parents would tease me because I used to play secretary, where I would organize. That was a game I played for hours when I was a kid.”
