Here are some of Roth’s comments:

On not having a scholarship available:

“Things went really well at Indiana and we had a great class come in of freshmen and they were probably banking on a few people to leave early or transfer and it just didn’t happen. It’s a unique situation and it just happens to be one that I’ve fallen in.”

On potentially playing for another school for one season:

“I know there’s a lot of opportunities out there, but it’s hard to leave what we built at IU and go play anywhere else. I don’t think it’s necessarily something that I would want to do. I want to always be a Hoosier.”

On turning around the program:

“It took us a few more years than we would have liked, but being able to get back to an NCAA Tournament and make a run to the Sweet 16 and play one of our better games, just we played it on Kentucky’s best night. It’s a great feeling, even if it is time to move on, to know that we brought Indiana back.”

On how good Indiana could be in 2012-2013:

“The sky’s the limit. I was down there working camp and obviously know all of the guys, know all of the recruits and saw how hard they’re working in the offseason. The sky’s the limit. I’m excited to either be a part of it or watch first hand and see how far they take things. Hopefully they get a couple rings out of it.”

On whether there is a drop dead date for determining his plans for the fall:

“It’s getting to that point in time where I’ve gotta start making sure that I’m prepared for whatever is next. If that means looking in and interviewing for jobs, that’s something I’m going to have to do and know in the back of my mind that if I get that phone call that says ‘hey, we’ve got an opportunity for you to play again,’ it’d be pretty hard to ever pass that up.”
