So apparently Paul Meyers resigned, again

Recommended Posts

 

 

Lincoln Journal-Star reports that Nebraska associate athletic director Paul Meyers is no longer in his role as chief fundraiser for the athletic department. Also, Ohio University has hired NU's associate athletic director for marketing Michael Stephens as senior athletic director for external operations. For an athletic department that prides itself on continuity, two major high level departures are eyebrow-raising.

Take it FWIW but Stephens is taking a decent step up - albeit to a smaller school - so that would probably be considered a promotion. Not sure if the two are related.

 

 

That one is unrelated... Step up for sure.

 

That said a lot of unsettling things going on up there.

There were reports that - while great at his job - Meyers could be .... opinionated. Possibly that and getting passed over for a job he really wanted didn't mesh and finally fell apart.

 

 

Perhaps there's more to it than that. Perhaps not.

Assuming they approached him out of the blue. Doesn't mean there wasn't a reason he was out looking.

There are casualties in any large operation when there is a change in leadership. Given the past errors and struggles when there were attempts of continuity between leadership change, this could be an instance where change is good.

 

Anyone worried about a donor drop off or tickets going unsold, well I would hasten to say fielding a team projected by most to finish third in it's division....something that's NEVER been ok in this program, is a far bigger issue than who's calling the donor in. North stadium.

I was sorry to see Paul Meyers’ departure from the University of Nebraska. Whatever the cause, it’s a mistake. Meyers belongs in college sports. He would make a terrific athletic director. If there was ever a thought about Meyers growing into the A.D. job at NU, his alma mater should have groomed him for it, beefed up his résumé with more responsibility for when Tom Osborne retired. It brought him back as a fundraiser, and now he’s gone. It’s too bad. I wish Meyers well. I hope he stays in the college game. It’s hard to leave home, but I hope he gets in the athletic director game. With his people skills, common sense wisdom, and passion as a former player and coach, college sports could use more like him.

Whoever made chris' avatar is pushing the rules. There's a lot more red removed from that CENSORED stamp than before.
