    I'll withhold judgement. Not sure how I feel about this one.

    This has been a supremely successful strategy for Xavier in recent searches. I think they’ll find big success continues with Steele at the helm.

    I believe that Xavier did the right thing.

    Cant disagree with this at all. I just hope they listen to everyone that was interested before making this decision.

    Only hire they could make. They have a good recruiting class and if he was gone, they lose most.
    Sometimes the best hire is the one who knows the ins and outs.

    I have more confidence in Steele than I had in Mack when he was selected head coach at X. Mack really surprised me in how good a coach he became.

    It has seemed to work for Xavier in the past promoting coaches up from within.

    X has a very average recruiting class at best for 2018. They literally missed on every one of their top 13 targets. The key was keeping the 2017 class in house, and Steele likely does that...

    Pretty much what I meant. I was speaking of what they have. Sorry for confusion.

    Jonas Hayes is joining Steele's staff at Xavier. Was an assitant under Mark Fox at Georgia. Supposed to be a good recruiter.
