Find someone to do it. It's not that complicated. I've turned down other coaches before and I can only recall once where I actually recruited for someone in the same division/world. And I only did this because my squad didn't have any scholarships. Again, I only made the statement because you're on someone else for doing it.
As for the situation, it's being handled. The issue started with you/UConn, but there was a lot more that went into it. Just losing Wells wouldn't have been a problem. It was the loss of the others that steamrolled it. Personally, I think it cost me a legit run at the National Title, but it is what it is. I'm not one to bring all of that out in the open, hence why it didn't drag out on the CC/boards when it happened. As I said, I was pretty ****** about it all going down how it did. It's just one of those things that you make a note of and move on. It only took PSU 1 season to reload and start performing again. Hopefully, for the sake of the B10, you can do the same with Illinois. The irony is, after doing such a great job with indians/Providence, you once again get to fix UConn, because UCH (or you, who really knows) had a terrible recruiting session last year.
