[ Long Beach State Sports ]
I was just reading the article the Daily Forty Niner did on the athletic budget . We are in poor shape! We do need an AD who can bring out the fans in basketball and all sports that make money. Also he or she will need to have a great relationship with donors or our future will be in division 2 sports. We won't like that.
Why is this a surprise? Fees were raised to match the deficit. Every business has operate within budget constraints. It now becomes more important for the BAC to get donors and increase attendance. What job has an unlimited budget?
I see it more line in the sand clause, like, we will give you a set budget every year...it may go up every year but it will then be set...and you must stay within 1% because any amount over that decreases your budget the following year to pay off the difference, it will cause a 'debt plug' inserted into the budget that will be a fully realized expense on day one of that budget, and essentially all other expenses will have to equal expected revenue so if revenue is flat, other expenses will have to be cut.
At some point this kind of fiscal control had to happen.
The new AD will have to figure out new revenue channels for anything beyond what they are budgeted every year. And I hope regular expenses that always go up are considered for regular budget increases.
New AD will have to get creative too. I wish them the best!
All future Ad's will fail or hire bad coaches to match the budget.
So, we are looking for a budget person who is able to stay within a set budget. I am guessing this is a common job description when looking for an administrator at this level but I wonder how many prospective experienced candidates read this and deleted the application posting.
This job duty:
Responsible for the reconfiguring or restructuring of the Athletic Department so that it operates within 1% of its budget. After 2023 any deficits in budget will not be covered by the University but will be charged to the subsequent year’s budget.
This is of interest as well
The position will remain open until filled; but, for best consideration, applicants are encouraged to submit a letter of application and resume electronically via: www.collegiatesportsassociates.com by June 12, 2023.
