There is nothing wrong with change, if it is in the right direction. - Winston Churchill
I am dying to know.
Guys, in my "tent making" job, most of my career I managed managers. There is a saying that you have to do the right thing the right way. Unless your the TN AD, thus the law suits against the athletic department. I have no knowledge of UT's goings on in this matter, but it takes awhile to build a case and do it the right way. In this case it would be easy, but it might take a year.
Right Problem - Wrong Answer
No need to fire Cheek or Little Miss Martin.
Just go back to the previous chain of command and have the AD report to the UT System president, Pietro (and Board of Trustees / Governor Haslam). That can be done quickly and simply bypasses the problem. Then you can have Pietro act as "a committee of one" in quickly okaying those 4-5 "at-risk" recuits each year - and do it on a a man-to-man / handshake basis.
That is how everyone does it, and it is also how we did before.
Answer Number Two: Revert to the previous chain-of-command and have the AD manage the Thorton Center.
The next Board of Trustees meeting is February 28 - March 1. The annual meeting is mid June.
Write your state representative, state senator and the governor if you really want reall change. They really do pay attention.
