Kid doesn't need a coach, he needs a babysitter.

Kennedy was not happy that Steele did not fly down to see him after he was hired and instead sent someone else.
if this is true, then i say "good riddance". we don't need someone like that.
Why? Maybe he just wants to make sure he is not one of the “old regime’s” guys. This often happens with coaching changes. Not wanting to get lost in the shuffle is reasonable.

Agree with Jesse, 100%. This is a two way street and a huge decision for both sides. Sounds like an intelligent young man wanting to make sure of the landscape he is about to encounter.
As another posted, this is far better than how it played out with Mr. Ridder.

In hindsight I’m sure Steele would now have gone there immediately vs send someone else. I can’t argue with a recruit rethinking his decision after a coaching change. This is a thin class anyway so I figure we will add a recruit

I'm sure he had a lot of things that he had to do immediately and had to set his priorities.

I just got to thinking about how it would be if someone had accepted a job offer from a company and then in the meantime the company was bought out (changed hands) and now you did not know the people in charge and now you would not know how that would affect you. Maybe the new company would not have the same idea of what your job would entail. Not exactly the same thing but close. He is looking at a possible 4 year commitment so I do not blame him for getting some clarity to what expected of him so he could feel comfortable in his role. Just saying. Go Xavier!

And the CEO sent a rep to reassure you instead of going himself, you wouldn't take a job at Google. right?

Shadow - XU is not like GOOGLE. If he had an offer from Duke or Kentucky he would not consider leaving. Getting an underling sent to tell him everything was going to be the same. Steele (to his credit did go to him) and talked about his role on the team. Now, he is still considering XU as his first choice so maybe this much ado about nothing. We will see. Go Xavier!
