 Bob Thomason jokes about his remarkable coaching longevity at his alma mater by saying the ever-changing athletic directors over the years didn't know better than to keep him around.
That's hardly the case. Yet as Thomason prepares to step down in the coming weeks after a quarter-century guiding the Pacific program, he realizes how special it is to stay put at one school for so long in this day of high-pressure, high-turnover coaching tenures in college athletics.
Before he starts reflecting on all of that too much, Thomason wants to make sure his players have the best chance to finish with another NCAA tournament appearance after he guided the Tigers there four times previously.
Pacific (17-12 overall, 11-5 Big West) will honor Thomason during Saturday's game against Long Beach State.
