Disappointment can be heard in Frazier's voice when he described how it felt knowing he wouldn't get another chance to lead a group of players and coaches that worked so hard.

"I was hoping we'd get a chance to finish what we started. We were so close to where our guys have been battling, I thought if we fixed a couple things this season we'd be right back in the thick of things," he says.
