Re: Any opinions on Kadowaki?
since the financial side is out of order then it seems that the school needs a new influx of money coming in -- so how is ted going to bring in the extra $$$ that you say is needed? -- increase the students fees to cover the difference, keep a small amount of $$ to cover any un-foreseen financial problems that might come up - $200 per student per year for 3 years and then up another $50 for another 3 years, etc etc etc -- do not forget the new play for pay bs that is coming next year -- give 60% of the income for student improvements or additional rec things for the to do and the balance to athletics for upgrades and this new play for pay that will start next year -----
Ted is there for one thing, and one thing only: to get the fiscal house in order. The department has a HUGE deficit, and that's the reason for Fee departing. As for the actual running of the sports program(s), that's not Ted's strength or interest.
seems like he's there for nuts and bolts day to day admin
teh main concern is not a great time for a vacuum, plus, Conolly is having the AD report to a VP, so big question is during a critical time of changes in the NCAA, who is gonna be taking on the NIL/Marketing/Collective strategy that it would seem Beach needs to get their arms around - at a time the Beach needs to get out in front on the programs
Haven't heard a peep from anyone (both boards) regarding whether this is a good interim hire or not. Based on this guys background, it wouldn't surprise me if he seeks the A.D. position permanently.
