Interesting. He'd be the youngest AD i can think of.
OT: Heath Shuler under consideration for Tennessee AD
Um, ish, the article doesn't say how old Heath is. Do you know?
He is 40, So nowhere near the youngest AD
Edit beat me to it, his bday must have not came yet this year
Who's the youngest AD?
It is hard to believe that Heath would do worse than the last guy, the one who hired Lane.
What a job. Being an athletic director must be amazing. Yeah I understand there are situations where you take fire, but my god, I would LOVE my job
I guess that's why Brandon gave up a shot at politics and Bill Martin stayed on for a decade after taking the job on an interim basis. Must be fun gettin' up in the morning.
That's certainly true with an AD job at a great school like Michigan with a huge fanbase and tons of money for top-notch facilities. I can imagine being the AD at a school like Eastern Michigan is a financial nightmare. Probably have to do tough decisions like cutting programs/firing staff, not to mention drumming up attendance, due to the horrible financial situations some of these institutions find themselves in.
I clicked the button once I swear....
He never reall left Knoxville. When I lived there there were billboards for his realty stuff all over the place. Plus it's Tenn so they like to keep it all in the family.
For a big time school, Tennessee is really bad at making personnel decisions involving its sports programs.
except for the iron clad deal with the devil the have Pat Summit locked into. Somehow they were able to shit out gold with that one.
He is a safe choice. Quite, a backbencher kind of guy. After what tenn has had recently that would help settle things done in Knoxville.
