FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WLFI) - The Coaches Caravan made stops in Muncie and Fort Wayne on Tuesday.
The goal for the event is to reach out to Boilermaker fans across the state of Indiana.
Purdue men's basketball head coach Matt Painter and Purdue football head coach Darrell Hazell met and spoke with fans.
The two also shared their thoughts on their teams and competing in the Big Ten.
"I think some of the things that you put your hands around is team building, making sure everyone understands their role within the team, but also the importance of toughness in the Big Ten," said Hazell. "It's hard to win football games no matter where you are but in the Big Ten you better be very good in November and it's all about toughness."
"We didn't have depth, It didn't make for competitive practices, it didn't make for every day trying to grind to try and get out there on the court," said Painter speaking about his team. "Things really got set because there really wasn't that next guy. I'm half serious and I'm half joking but the best thing to happen to Ronnie Johnson this year was that he played 33 minutes and the worst thing that happened to Ronnie Johnson was that he played 33 minutes. We needed depth at all positions and we just didn't have it. We have a lot of depth there and that's going to be the difference, I think we'll be able to make more improvements in-between games because of that."
The Coaches Caravan is making eight "stops" from May to July, the John Purdue Club and the Purdue Alumni Association is thrilled to bring Boilermaker Athletics to devoted fans across the state.
