The departure of North Dakota State University men's basketball coach Saul Phillips is a hot topic on campus.
Many students say they understand the business side of sports, but they're sad to see Phillips go.
Freshman Andi Elvert tells WDAY-TV that the tournament experience was a great moment for the school, and it's hard to see Phillips leave. But Junior John Carlin says Phillips can't be blamed for wanting to advance his career.
Phillips said in a statement that he leaves with "nothing but positive memories."
