Thank you Elbow Buc---here is my plan


1. Do not take a blow torch to this thingdo not fire everyone in sight.
2. Athletic director needs to be replaced.whether this year or next, preferably Jan 2018. Just do not see a reconciliation between him and fan base. Basically between the budget cuts, his raise, his extension, firing Ruff, lacrosse, basketball futility and then Moe tanking two seasons, I just do not believe a settlement with the fans is possible, a divorce seems evident. I know there might be situations to explain the above happenings, the fans are just not going to buy it.
3. I would extend the contract for the current basketball coach, but only until the new athletic director is hired and settled in. It is unfair to bring someone in and then throw a new AD in his lap. Tell the current coach he is getting an extended evaluation period. Basketball has been bad for 50 years, we can be patient.
4. Hire the new AD (which might be the most important hire in ECU athletic history) and put him to work in the evaluating process. Chancellor and BOT, hope you realize how important a hire this will be.
5. If you think this is a quick fix.I do not think that is a realistic expectation.
6. Ask Terry Holland or Pat Dye to come in as a consultant to help the Chancellor and BOT in the search process. I certainly realize that probably is not going to happen, so if you want to erase no 6 suggestion, it would not matter to me.
7. Hire me to be on the search committee. Change that, I will do it for free. Had to add a little humor to this otherwise serious topic.
