Family played a large role in Erik Helland jumping from the NBA to Wisconsin

Thanks to this great feature from Jessie Temple of Fox Sports Wisconsin, we're able to get a better introduction to Helland, Wisconsin men's basketball's new strength and conditioning coach. Helland spent 24 seasons with the Bulls and the last 12 as their head strength coach, but the Edgerton, Wis., native told Temple he just couldn't compensate for the rigorous work schedule with his family. "'I sat down and I crunched numbers when I was making this decision,' Helland said. 'If you count home games, where I leave my house at 8 o'clock in the morning, I don't get home until 11:30 at night. I looked at being away from my family 150-plus days last year. I couldn't reconcile that with my family.'"
