No, they are lying.December 10 2010 at 5:46 PM
Response to Re: Verbal commitments are all you can do at this point
They won't sent you anything on official letterhead, signed by the Athletic Director or coach, until the official letter.
But, they can send you an email from the coach that states what they are have to offer.
That way, if the coach quits, dies, is fired, or "forgets" what was agreed to, you have something to show to "remind" the school of their promises. Coaches move all the time, and unless you have something to show the athletic director, you are screwed.
I would ask the coach, how are you to verify that your kid receives everything that is promised, if they don't send you an email? What if the coach finds another job?
If they are not willing to put it in an email, I would be very suspicious. Either they are offering multiple offers to students and are stringing your kid along or they are not honest in their dealings.
