Picking the next AD can have either a lasting Lazarus effect on the athletic profile or a become a complete cluster that could set things back for decades. Rams, take your time and get it right.

I'm glad he had the nads to cancel it.  The candidates were not viable, especially for WSSU. I believe the next search committee will have to be more open minded about the candidates.

This IS a valid point.

They should go with a young energetic  smart coach that is looking to move into admin that will be ride or die for his programs!

I don't know what to think about this... You're going to had to go out recruiting to find a decent AD, it's not that attractive of a job after the budget cuts....

What were they looking for in an AD Oldram?

The general theme was "someone good at fund raising."  ::)

Then they pick those three as the finalists out of all the applications they received? The person geographically closest to WSSU knew nothing about the school.


The alumni et. al, also wanted that, but prefer that Rams be given priority in their thinking. There are many alumni, including myself, who at minimum will have the passion needed to sell WSSU to non-participants.

ECU is a dumpster fire. They don’t represent the rest of the UNC System. Maybe 2 schools saw declines....

C'mon Aggie Law give it a break man. I've worked at enough PWCs to know A&T and most HBCUs and small to mid-range PWCs ain't kicking up no dust! A&T is really a big fish in a very small fish bowl. Not throwing shade...just being honest.

Any real updates? I figure your not hiring a coach until you get an AD

The AD will be in place before the end of the year.
