But you still avoided the main question of a "coach" considering the UI job (which was your main point in the context of Stevens) and stated that the UI job is a mid level job. You then responded in the context of advising a kid (which was irrelevant IMO). Since IU had been atrocious for a few years until this year, did you consider the IU job a low level BT job?
I've always considered the Indiana job an "elite" job.

Just my opinion.
