When Travis Steele was hired last year, he was hired through the 2023 season. In Steele’s first season at the helm he took a team in transition to the NIT before losing to eventual consolation champion Texas. The Musketeers finished the season at 19-16 which, while it isn’t what the fanbase has become accustomed to, represented something of a success after a rough start.
Yesterday, Xavier added another year to Steele’s contract with AD Greg Christopher saying, in part, “This extension reflects the confidence I have in the direction of our program. Working with Travis and his staff, I have seen their work-ethic, strategy and decision-making in action.
