“We are very grateful to add coach Wainwright as the final member of our staff. I have known coach since early in my career and have always been humbled by his willingness to share wisdom with me as I have advanced. I never knew as we were building our relationship, that an opportunity like this would ever materialize, but I am very grateful that it has. His wealth of knowledge and experiences will help everyone in our program on one level or another.”
