Joe Coleman Thanks Fans and the Team
Jim Cowsert-USA TODAY Sports

Former Gophers swingman Joe Coleman's abrupt transfer this week might have taken fans and the team by surprise. But in a text message Wednesday night, Coleman said he thought about this decision before new coach Richard Pitino arrived last month. “After much consideration, I have decided that transferring will be best for me. This was not an easy decision by any means, and is something I have been considering since before Coach Pitino arrived at Minnesota. I wish Coach Pitino, his staff and my former teammates nothing but the best. I also want to wholeheartedly thank the Minnesota fans, staff and students for making my first two years of college so unforgettable.”
