It doesn’t always take a CEO/ CFO in today’s times. You can have college football coaches with basic education controlling billions. You don’t need a masters in business economics and maybe even more before you start making the decisions for the major programs of the NCAA.
Fulmer would have been great 15-20 years ago and would be really awesome now. I don’t think the business of college sports has grown to large for ex-great coaches should be entitled to the AD job as their “retirement thank you” from their alma mater. I loved how Fulmer took our football program to the next level and think his name should stand next to Neylands and Majors but that is for coaching. I liked what Dickey did for UT too but I have a feeling he would be the best fit as our AD in today’s times either…..he had a Bachelor’s in P.E.
Hell, he is Bama’s daddy. Ask any bammer and they will agree with me on that.
