“Steve’s awesome. He’s been a great ambassador for our program though the years, a great backer of our program,” said Utah coach Kyle Whittingham. “He’s donated a lot to what we’re doing here, and he’s a Ute. He’s all in. He’s a guy we have great relationship with and I think he really enjoyed his time here and feels good about what’s going on.”
