CW : I know some of the guys already, but some of them we don’t. It’s kind of early you know? Our quarterback Luke Schomburg. He’s waited his time. He’s doing great things for us. He’s pretty much the leader. So we looked up for him to step up on this.
CC : What do you expect from your new coaches and what do they bring to the table?
