we've talked very very little since we both made the moves. that's just because we've been really really busy we texted a couple of times, we were really busy but we were at uh our former schools we would communicate quite a bit about different ideas we would use with our teams. i mean he was extremely positive and has some great motivational stuff that he uses with his guys so i love talking with him about that stuff.
