He's amassed an impressive 637-392 record in that time, and his first season with the Kings has seen them have their first winning season in 16 years.

“In the perfect world, it would go to our medical and performance group. Because they're the one that are keeping the guys out on the floor, night-in and night-out… we've had our guys out there probably more than anybody else in the league, and it might not even be close…”
