"We are excited to finally bring Butter on staff full-time because the kids love him and he's a phenomenal positive influence on the players. I've never seen him have a bad day personality-wise and that type of vibe is crucial when working with all levels of players. He has the potential to be a great coach because he sees the game as a player does and he connects with the kids."
