Self expresses deep emotion, appreciation during Hall of Fame speech

“Everyone who has known coached or worked for (Self) has known how good he was,” former Self staffer and foe Doc Sadler said Friday night. “But obviously, with his induction tonight, it lets you know that everybody feels the same way.”

Never one to get too emotional when talking about himself or his career, Self let his guard down for just a bit on Friday night, when sharing the story of how he learned about his election to the Hall of Fame.

“I was literally driving to work, getting ready to pull into the parking garage at Allen Fieldhouse. I knew I’d lose reception if I went into the garage so I kept going straight and I turned right at the stop sign onto Naismith Drive,” Self recalled. “Getting that call, driving down Naismith Drive, the street on which I office, seemed so surreal to me. ...I will never take this honor for granted and I will be more humbled now than ever occupying an office on Naismith Drive.”
