Is this the same guy who said Conroy was heading to Utah State?

I know Thorson. I saw the resume of Kemp. Looks good but low level experience. Nice to see a third with some high major experience.

Good experience all around. My analysis is that Ben is going to be doing a lot of the heavy lifting for recruiting. Thorson should have a large responsibility of installing actions and heavily assisting Ben in the gameplaning.

Curious to learn more about the other two.

McNeilly's bio

Things I like:
* years with Buzz Williams--I've always gotten the impression that Buzz is a strong teacher who gets the most of his talent and really develops that talent into NBA caliber (Jimmy Butler, Jae Crowder, as two examples).
* 11 years with Buzz, working his way up through the program as he has leads one to believe that he has a really strong understanding of the entire aspect of program building
* Love the Canadian connection--it's become a really fertile breeding ground for players--hoping this will translate into getting recruits from there.

Final thought:
I hope to the Lord above this is finalized and complete soon-my work productivity has been severely affected these past couple weeks. Now I can concentrate of the transfer portal instead of the assistant coaches thread ;-)

Justin Gaard says to pump the brakes on one of the names, so may not be final yet.

Does anyone know if this is a promotion/pay raise for McNeilly or if he has any connections to BJ or Thorson?

Also wonder why there was so much delay getting him finalized as the top assistant.
