Bingo! I wouldn't mind Morrison but would prefer a QUALIFIED, young and energetic hire to bring back the pride that we once had.

Dear trustees, Dubois, and search committee,

Write this down.  Here are the boxes the new AD must check or your life will be miserbale immediately:

1.  No policy wonk.  The lady at Arkansas is a big hell no.  Worked in ncaa 10 years?  Nuclear war if she's hired.

2.  Do not hire an administrator.  We need the Zig Ziglar or ADs.  Wolf of Wall Street level skills.

3.  If the press conference hire has triggers like "clean program, we have 17 sports, right type kids, soccer attendance, winning isn't most important, athlete experience, etc....  We will come after you with no lube.  Deadly serious

4.  Look south.  No A10 or Northeast persona.  Raid the SEC.  Also while your at it, absolutely no UNC blood. 

5.  See UCF and copy every page of playbook.  Youth, swagger, compete.  Morrison gets Mulligan on age.

6. Social media.  If your hire doesnt have active Twitter, it's a no.  It's 2018.  Danny Morrison gets slight exception same as above. 

7.  Make it known status quo is unacceptable and the AD must behave 180 degrees opposite of the DMV mentality

8.  Read every last #49erfestivus hastag on Twitter.  Fix them.

This article is almost a year old, but it mentions that Morrison may have his eye on becoming the president at Wofford.

Bring Back Judy Rose!!!  Was AD over our all time winningest basketball program.  Got us Football.  Has building named after her.  Servant leader.


No brainer!!   Since we love to romanticize, we really need to consider Rose.

Graham Neff at Clemson looks like a pretty good candidate from the folks David Scott mentioned.

http://collegead.com/next-2017-day-2/

Quote
GRAHAM NEFF, CLEMSON
Deputy Director of Athletics

Career to Date: Middle Tennessee(2010-2013); Georgia Tech (2008-2010)

Strengths: Financial Planning, Management

Why is he NEXT UP?: “Graham’s leadership has had an outsized effect on the positive changes the Clemson athletic program has enjoyed the past few years, and his influence has touched all facets of our department.” That’s high praise coming directly from Clemson Athletic Director Dan Radakovich. Despite a background primarily in finance, Neff has had a meteoric rise in his career because of the direction he provides across the department. “His leadership in facility development, staff organization and program management has helped make Clemson an outstanding athletics program. He is the complete package for today’s modern AD – skilled in finance, adept at social media, creative in revenue generation and a tireless worker. He’s certainly deserving of this recognition by CollegeAD and the 2017 NEXT UP class.”



Current salary $175,525

Neff, who began work March 11, came to Clemson from Middle Tennessee State University, where he served as Associate Athletic Director since 2010.  During his time at Middle Tennessee, Neff was responsible for the athletic department's finances and internal operations, including budgeting, financial planning, departmental contracts and support unit supervision.  He also oversaw facilities and capital projects, and served as sport supervisor for baseball and men's and women's track and field.

Prior to his time at Middle Tennessee, Neff spent two years at Georgia Tech as Financial Controller and Assistant Director of Ticket Operations.  He previously spent two years with the accounting firm Deloitte & Touche, LLP in the Financial Valuation group.

Neff earned a bachelor's degree in civil engineering from Georgia Tech in 2006 and served as head manager for the men's basketball team, advancing to the NCAA Final Four in 2004.  He completed an MBA in finance, also from Georgia Tech, in 2010.

Clemson's Track programs have gone backwards recently... however, I doubt Neff is responsible for that...  from my experience as long as track isn't causing problems you're left alone, might be different in the ACC though and they used to win a lot.


Regardless, looking at his bio that you posted, I've seen that a lot over the years in the "coaching" world where an Assn't or Volunteer is taking/given credit for athletes they didn't coach.  Think about it every staff member at Alabama, every Football Coach, every towel boy, athletic trainer, dining hall bus boy, etc... is going to claim assisting Alabama Football to winning a National Title however how small a roll they played they'll make it sound like they gave Saban the idea to start a true freshman in the second half to lead them to victory.... I'm sure Neff has got great number skills, but, that doesn't mean he can light a fire under coaches and get superior results...  it would be interesting having an AD 20 years younger than most of the head coaches though.  For all candidates I think youtube's of them speaking/interacting would help, also, since twitter is big maybe those with extra time post some enlightening tweets from top candidates.


I think we need someone from a school that is not that state's TOP 2 schools, they win with less, by out working the big guys, USF, UCF, Cincy, Witchita, Portland State, San Fran, Boise State (probably top school in this state though) Utah State, Houston, Tulsa, Western Michigan, I'm sure there are tons more... let's get an AD that is underpaid and undervalued throw $500k at them and get this thing going.

REMINDER: The search committee does not search for candidates. The search consultants are tasked with that.

So the consultants we hire will narrow down a list of candidates for us to choose from. Then this group of 10 headed by PD will make the ultimate decision? Assuming this group will also guide the consultant firm with the type of candidate we will be looking to hire.

If true, the consultant firm will be doing the heavy lifting/dirty work. But this "search committee" will still be making the majority of the decisions, steering the ship for who we hire.

I'd love to know the metrics for the search criteria because it flat out isn't as simple as 'find me a pool of candidates for athletic director'

I said it in SB but I will say it here too.  This AD hire isn't really as critical as many see.  Obviously we want a HR hire, but if we (Phil) F this up we have a mulligan.  Phil will leave soon and with a new chancellor comes a chance to do over.

And the next chancellor is a UNC shill.  Will be another 10-15 years of him/her pandering to east.

I say now is best time to score a real AD, as Phil can finally not worry about superiors and hire a proper AD.

That said, I think Phil Dubois is a power drunk dik-head and will hire a person like his brain dead (mens sports hating) committee.

If the right hire is not made now we may miss out on the next conference shake up

If it works now like it worked in the past, the search committee will come up with the criteria for the new AD.  the chancellor will approve the list and it will be given to the search firm.  and so it goes.   the criteria the search committee comes up with is critical.   second in importance only to their final recommendation which will be driven, of course, by the criteria.

I agree with many that the make up of this group.  However my other major concern was the last couple sentences in that release.  They basically said they want to get someone hired by June 30th. 

If they drag their feet on the athletic director.  Who's hiring the basketball coach?

If we hire a girl to do a man's job, especially one nowhere close to being qualified, I'm gone. Did Phil let Judy choose the search committee?
