"I've worked for guys like Hal Mumme, who [felt that] when you worked you worked and when you were done you went home. Bob Stoops is like that and Mike Leach worked for him before he came to [Texas] Tech. Kevin Sumlin worked for [Stoops] and then went to Houston. Mike Gundy's a family guy and likes to go home.
"Everybody that I've worked for are guys who do it like that. And like I said, it can be counterproductive if you stay in there for 14 hours. If you go in there and you know what you're doing and you have confidence in what you're doing, you go in and work for eight to 10 to 12 [hours] and you can get it done. If it takes 14, 16 or 18, then you'd better stay.''
Holgorsen touched on a variety of subjects Friday during a 30-minute session with reporters, among them:
Holgorsen wasn't involved in the suspension and said now he has to get caught up on Wright's situation, including where he's at academically and legally.
"And then I've got three little kids running around here that I'm trying to keep up with, as well,'' Holgorsen said of his own three children.
"I expect both of them to be ready come Aug. 4,'' Holgorsen said. "How they can do [in camp] isn't going to be what they were before they got hurt due to the fact that they aren't 100 percent between now and Aug. 4. But the good news is we don't play Aug. 4. We play Sept. 4. So we'll get those guys in and evaluate where they're at. If they're fine they'll start and if they aren't then they won't start.''
