Looks like they kept below their old white guy quota. It does make you wonder if that is legit and why Conroy and Robbins are gone, since both Conroy and Robbins had voiced things that made you think they were in and then suddenly they weren't.

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.

Someone tell me how I should be feeling??

LOL! Kidding, excited to hear people's breakdown.
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 ;-)

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.
