Let's not say and go get the man for the job.

No thought of failures or excuse!

As opposed to what? P5 guys who have been fired? Most P5 AD's started as associate AD's and then moved on to mid-majors before moving up to P5.


A major conference AD getting a pay raise.

I gave two examples in this thread. My 2nd choice could and should be the next KU AD.

I am not David Booth. I am not a KU alumni that can make it happen, right now.


As Pizza posted, your 2 examples are not realistic hires. Let's try for some real world candidates. I have (guarded) confidence in Jennings and Hughes to find the right person. Not sure how much those 2 were involved in Zenger hire. Also, Girod apparently is not Gray-Little.

Alan is very capable to be a A.D. if he has an interest in college sports.

I think that would be a tremendous hire. There's no reason to think we CAN'T attract top talent that can target, hire, and staff a LEGIT coach. Beaty should be packing now. It's clear that unless he wins 10 games or more this year (no way in hell) he's done.

I'd think 6 wins would do the trick...but I think that's just as (un)likely as ten.

what should the University be looking for in an A.D.?
-- sports experience at the college level?
-- knowledge of University sports finance?
-- knowledge of Big XII institutions


just an out of the box suggestion....how about Bobby Knight
