Paul Rivas interviews Coach Jerry Pimm on Jim Rome's KCSB days, being hooked on coaching, leading the nation in scoring as a high school senior, being good at everything from kick-the-can to golf, going to the Elite Eight at Utah but leaving to coach UCSB, living on a yacht in the Santa Barbara harbor, growing bigtime basketball in Santa Barbara, how getting in Akeem Olajawon's head cost UCSB the game against the Houston Phi Slamma Jammas, taking Jim Valvano out on the boat before the Gauchos whooped North Carlina State, knowing Jerry Tarkanian for 50 years, having great assistant coaches like Ben Howland, changing his thinking about tattoos, dividing his time between working out and watching sports on a 63-inch screen, his PGA-hopeful grandson Dustin Pimm, and being passed by Bob Williams as the winningest coach in UCSB history.
