Ed didn't hold back on his assessment of the program and what he saw wrong with it in his time as the Chief of Staff.

Reed believes we can be back in the National Championship hunt, and went on to speak about the lack of a “championship mentality” he’s seen from some of Miami’s players since joining the program as the Chief of Staff:
"The kids truly gotta want that in the locker room. I haven’t seen that attitude since I been around there. I know kids wanna win... There’s Cancer’s here... people saying this and doing certain things that you look at like that’s not championship effort." via @GreatDaneNation pic.twitter.com/ZALPKeFGk1— KappaCane (@KappaCane) January 28, 2022
Reed provided more insight into his role as the Chief of Staff, and how involved he is helping to develop players:

Ed called out the former Miami coaching staff for not being invested enough in the players, on or off the field:
“We have that experience through college and life that we can pour back into them, and that’s one of the big things like I didn’t see either man like being at the university man… I didn’t see those… see coaches pouring back into those kids you know..."— KappaCane (@KappaCane) January 28, 2022
