I think it was a childhood dream of his and you can’t take that personally. He’s been here in Indy for eight or nine years and done a great job here.
“If he wants to move on to other endeavors, you have to let him do what he wants to do. I don’t take it personally at all. He’s done great things here, and I wish him all the best and good luck going forward.”
