Didn't Vanderbilt get rid of the Athletic Director position a few years ago and place athletics under the control of the Dean of Student Life or something. It was an experiment that was widely discussed with predictions of doom*

Yes, and they still do not have an AD
How about our own Tim Leonard???? He has served his apprenticeship under Orsini, knows all the mistakes Orsini made and tangled with Orsini over the handling of Larry Brown, is highly regarded by the C of C and Athletic Committee, a known quantity, highly regarded by the AD staff....etc. I say we have our guy already on board and it is time to give him a shot. He has paid his dues.
Not to derail the comedy hour, but what characteristics are most important for a candidate?
--> Experienced D-I athletic director
--> Experience negotiating television contracts
--> Proven track record of marketing a university to a major city with sports entertainment options
--> Big-time fundraiser
