Charlotte 49er Football / Re: Adkins promoted to OC

Total Sham move in my opinion.  Nothing will change in this scenario.  Lambert's crony taken care of through the year then they all should be gone anyway.  Noticed nothing was mentioned about salary changes, etc.


I'm not sure if they can legally demote someone, salary-wise. If so, there might be a max reduction. I know several employers have policies like that here. He might be on a one-year contract and the money is already guaranteed. Just don't know.

They should have lowered his salary to 0. Mullen and Chris Ferguson should go set up a coaching school, get Alan Major to cut a nice piece of video of him clapping to play on the website.


Mr. Magoo would be their school mascot.

I just sent my email to the BoT and AD this past weekend. Realistically though, what is/are the next      step(s)? Keep emailing until we get a response or just wait out the season and hope changes are made at the end?

At what point can we say it's okay to riot?

This is somewhere between what I thought would happen (nothing) and what the board wanted to happen (Two Men and a Truck pulling up to Mullen's house).  I suppose it is possible that Mullen is a decent coach that got promoted to his level of incompetence.  Perhaps QB coach will be a good fit for him.  Fingers crossed.

This looks like proof that the heat is on.

 Here is mine-



Members of the University Board of Trustees:
 
I submit you each of you the time has come to make a change at the Athletic Director position at the University.  I write to you fresh off football losing back to back home games to an FCS opponent, and an FBS opponent who was viewed as one of the worst in the country prior to their 28-0 shellacking of our team.  The football team is emblematic of the entire Athletic program at Charlotte. We are happy to exist, nothing more. We operate in an environment where winning doesnít appear to be a key component of what is defined as success. UNC Charlotte recently became the 3rd largest university in the state, its high time we acted like it.

Quite candidly, Iím not sure how the leadership team of the University can look the student body in the eyes and say with any conviction their fees are being prudently managed. Each full time student is paying in excess of $800.00 annually to support this program- total fees that will soon approach $25,000,000.00. What exactly are they getting in return? What is their ROI? How has their student experience been improved? Students certainly have nice facilities to attend events; however the results of those events have been poor in the revenue sports.  Since the Menís basketball team last made the NCAA tournament in 2002, 227 different programs have participated in March Madness. Football, while still young has seen similarly situated conference peers such as Old Dominion and UTSA, and regional foe Georgia State all play in bowl games.  While we werenít expecting bowl games year in and year out, winning a home game didnít appear to much of an ask. This staff has lost 12 if the 14 homes games we have played as an FBS member, and have yet to beat an FBS foe at home. Part of me wants to say ďgive it some timeĒ, but my pragmatic side points to the 12 year (and counting) demise of the basketball program as the prime reason we need to act now.   

I ask each of you to lean on you collective experiences in corporate America when considering how your employer would respond to such a protracted regression? The chancellor has not required any standard that includes winning in defining success; I hope you can.

Regards,

One thing I didn't consider, I don't think there is anyone else on staff with QB coaching experience. Let's keep that in mind.


And I would put our QB play as our 2nd largest concern outside of play calling.


We need a new OC...and we need a new QB coach. 


We got both.....but just shuffled the bad OC to QB coach and the bad QB coach to OC.


Not sure how excited I am about the move other than it was a move.


But I guess we can't drain the swamp until after the season.

When I played athletics winning enhanced my experience. Also if you're talking about amenities having your program in the AAC would help to provide funding for those.

Judy does not value winning. It is not a priority, if she says so, it is lip service. She pushing the student experience and equality. She does not push what should be the flagship programs in our AD.
that's all fine and good when you aren't funding your program with student fees. Right now our students are paying for athletes to have a better student experience than they get and they are getting nothing in return for it.

If winning doesn't matter, then find donors to fund your project or fold the program.

That felt good. I don't care if I was shouting into an empty room.
