Q: Do you enjoy the recruiting part of it, the grinding and making the calls? I get the feeling (fellow Memphis assistant coach) Joe (Esposito) loves that part of it. He seems to really eat it up. Or do you enjoy the Xs and Os (of coaching) more?

A: If I had to put one ahead of the other, obviously I love the Xs and Os, the preparation on the court and the teaching and skill development stuff. The last few years I was doing a lot of analytics up at Texas Tech, which was new to me. I feel like I'm pretty decently well-versed in some of that stuff now, being that I've been to two or three seminars every summer mainly with NBA guys and the higher-level analytic guys.

Recruiting, to me, is the lifeblood of a program. But the great thing about working for a guy like Coach Smith is if a player is not interested or kind of puts us to the side, we don't even worry about it. We just move on to the next kid. He's won with less players; he's won with great players. So when a kid struggles to figure out what he wants to do, we're like, 'Look, you've got a scholarship offer. We're willing to take you if you really want to come. We're letting you know we've got two or three other kids in mind.' And if they say, 'Coach, I'm gonna wait,' I'm like, 'Well, it's been great. Let us know if we can do something for you,' and we'll just go sign the other kid. We don't have time for that.

No it did not. Tubby has been a disaster at High Point so far.

This interview just oozed arrogance and being completely out of touch / tone deaf....

Saul certainly inherited his father's arrogance.

A couple of years of analytics at Texas Tech makes him an expert?

They didn't have time to wait for player decisions because they had tee times to make.

What a horrendous hire Tubby was.

No doubt...those of us wanting to give him a chance were proven wrong, on many levels actually
