Default Rutgers President apparently needs Google.

Remember the whole Mike Rice controversy? A lot of people were fired in the aftermath. One of them was the athletic director. It's an important post and I don't really know how hard it is to find qualified candidates. But I do know that in the wake of a scandal about a coach abusing players you probably want to avoid hiring an AD that has been accused of abuse by 15 players.

Just saying.

Default Re: Rutgers President apparently needs Google.

What's interesting is that the new AD, Julie Hermann, wasn't on the list put together by the search firm hired to by the school, but was placed on the candidate list by the co-chair of the search committee because she wanted a woman to get the job.

Now, basically the whole state hates the AD even before she takes office. An online poll indicated that 85% of about 8,000 people want her fired.

The local press is now digging into how the co-chair assumed the power to do what she did. Apparently, she's the founder of the school's LGBT chapter, and people are wondering if Hermann is of the same persuasion, and that's the reason she was selected.

Bad hire, in my view, and its embarrassed Rutgers nationally yet again. The latest news is the governor isn't going to fire the school president, Barchi, and that Hermann will keep her job despite lying through her teeth for the last week.

Pretty pathetic.
