It was, as is often the case with this old coach, couched in a joke.

Said UNLV coach John Robinson on Tuesday, two days after announcing he will retire at the end of the season: "I think some young players are saying 'Uh-oh. Who are they bringing in?' I try to reassure them. Whoever it is wouldn't be as good looking as I am or young as I am, but I think he has a chance to bring new energy to the program, and I think that's good."
