Leader of the Pack

The Dub is getting closer to a new athletics director (or director of athletics).

Three finalists have been named and will visit (and fall in love with) the UNCW campus in the next couple of weeks:

John Blanchard, Senior Associate Athletic Director, UNC
Kevin McNamee, Deputy Athletic Director, George Mason
Kelly Landry Mehrtens, Associate Athletic Director/Senior Women’s Administrator, Kansas

I’ve got to think if it comes down to a head-to-head between Blanchard and McNamee, McNamee gets the nod based on head-to-head record. (It’s too easy!)

But seriously, I’ve got to think the choice–all else being equal–is the strongest fundraiser. As much as we romanticize all of this, at the end of the day college basketball is just like any other business. The cruel reality is that the answer to any question always involves a form of the phrase: “it comes down to the money.”


In other AD/DA news…George Mason director of athletics Tom O’Connor has been named the Southeast Division AstroTurf AD of the Year by the National Association of Collegiate Athletic Directors.
