Anyone's guess. All the good ones are taken. Need to find someone who's stock is on the rise.

he was a candidate at k-state. must want out of fayetteville.

ku should hire john currie. he'd fix compliance, facilities, and financials as he did at k-state, but wouldn't kowtow to self/adidas, so that won't work.

Are we talking their former AD Jeff Long or current AD Hunter Yurachek?

If they can bring Bielema or Chad Morris to KU, I approve.

I see. Jeff Long has been mentioned by Brett McMurphy as a candidate. Hadn't seen any mention of Hunter.

Yeah didn't he run off Frank Martin?

Tait has current interim AD Sean Lester on his short list. God I hope not. All we need is someone associated with Zenger and a losing football program. We need an AD that has been associated with a winning football program-period. For once lets hire a "football AD" and not someone who wants only basketball to be successful.

Thanks KSU booster, KU needs more compliance, facilities and financials work (not). Find somewhere to go hide. Bill Self is a model HC, now we need a model football HC preceded by a complete AD who is football savvy.

Pass.

He's Bruce Weber at Illinois. He looks good because the guy before him left a great situation. Graham hired McElwain to put CSU football on the map. Graham hired Eustachy to make CSU basketball passable. Graham started the new stadium and got a decent chunk of the fundraising done.

Parker hasn't wowed. His hires and pay aren't something I'd be happy with. While he didn't hire Bobo, he's average in the MWC and was extended by Parker to make him the highest paid in the conference. Niko Medved was a wtf hire after going 17-17 last year. Add that CSU softball hosted sit ins to fight against inequality among the athletic teams...I don't see why he'd be the top choice.

He is someone getting credit for a new stadium while the previous AD was the one who collected the donations from boosters. Earlier, I was happy to tout HC Bobo as someone way more qualified than Beaty but now the time has passed and Mike Bobo has been only so-so in the MVC. We should look further into getting a qualified candidate. I also thought CSU would fit into the Big 12 but that time has also passed IMO.

I haven't seen Kevin Pritchard's name mentioned anywhere, probably for lack of AD experience, but the man can run an organization. And he'd be popular with the boosters.
