Final press conference video


Jim Boylan; Former Marquette Player; Current Milwaukee Bucks Assistant Coach:

“He’s done so much for basketball at Marquette and all through the state of Wisconsin. For me personally, he’s always been there. He’s one of those guys who, if you don’t see Rick for a while and when something was going wrong and you needed help, boom, he’d be there. He did so much for me over the years when I was trying to get my career going. Just extending himself and giving you whatever it is you needed, whether it was a phone call, having me come out to Salt Lake and staying with him four or five weeks at a time working. He’d basically give you the shirt off his back, if that’s what you needed. He would do whatever it took. He’s going to be really missed. Great person.”

Doc Rivers; Former Marquette playe; Boston Celtics Head Coach:

“That’s a tough one for me. He’s the one that gave me my name.”

Did you find out before or after the game (at Bucks):

“I knew. I knew before the game that he wasn’t going to make it through the night. I don’t want to talk much about it.”

Buzz Williams:

“As an institution, a program, and as a coach, we are saddened by Coach Majerus’ passing.  The game has lost one of the great innovators whose mark will never be forgotten.

“He will be missed by the entire college basketball community. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Majerus family.”
