Personal Quote:

If I hadn't cut my teeth on that kind of TV [Hill Street Blues (1981)], I would've never been able to do Hoosiers (1986). No textbook can teach you the stuff I learned on my feet. I'd come to work every day with a detailed game plan, but never executed it--everything went to hell in a handbasket in two hours. It was a crash course in learning how to think on the fly.

Trivia:

Has a daughter, Vanessa Christine (born in 1979), with his first wife, Tamara Kramer. See more »
