Re: Athletic Director Candidates???
P5 “guy”? I’d put a decent size wager we’ll see someone with higher levels of estrogen with this hire….and I have zero problem
with that provided they’re capable of excelling in the position.
I also think there’s a pretty decent size pool of candidates who have started their careers at mid major programs but currently
work at a P5. Those P5 AD jobs are tough to come by, and prior
AD experience (even at a lower level) helps, so I’m hopeful you could find someone with background across different levels motivated to make a mark at Long Beach. That may mean the person is closer to a 5 year versus 10 year hire, but that’s the environment (and I don’t limit that just to athletic administration).
The problem with a P5 guy is they are unlikely to understand the complexities of competing with a fraction of the budget.
I would like to see someone coming from a P5 or high level G5 school. Someone that has seen the bigger picture and understands how to get there. Also someone that isn't using their position as a woke political platform.
I would like to see Rob Clark return.
Any thoughts on who might be a good candidate to replace Andy? I have heard various people mention Alan Knipe, Rob Clark, and Wayne Stickney. I have no idea about how Jane plans to go about finding a replacement. Appoint Alan seems like an easy and fast way to go, but...
