We were very impressed with Adam's demeanor and character throughout the hiring process. He's not only a great coach, but an amazing person who will fit perfectly into our team culture. Adam is excited to be a Bengal and help contribute to our program's future success.

I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Adam. He will be a fantastic asset to our players in their holistic development as student-athletes and people."
