IMHO the most detrimental part of this situation is that Dr. Conoley doesn't understand that folks like me don't donate in order to offset her administration's budget cuts. We donate because we love our University and want to support our student/athletes. Furthermore, this creates an impossible situation for the AD. I am afraid that Dr. Conoley is a better state bureaucrat than a University President.
Have you heard of the CARES ACT. It was the act passed to help businesses, etc. during the COVID pandemic.
Well, Long Beach State was given $732,000.00 for athletics.
Madam C has an unrealistic, unknowledgeable understanding of athletic budgets. She hears the campus CFO Scott Apel continually hammer that athletic budgets need to be cut and that expectations need to be reshaped.
Anyway, he convinced Madam C to cover other campus expenses with the money. Needless to say hurting the athletics budget.
Guess who the acting AD reports to.
