GOOD EVENING SPORTS FANS! You’ve survived another work week (no one works on Fridays) so let’s get to tonight’s slate of sports! We here at CN are equal oppurtunity sportologists, so you’ve got the MLB playing stick ball, opening night for the Canadian Ice Sport, some sort of game in Florida between billionaires, and a ranked match between a university under federal investigation and NC State. Fun!
In case you missed it, USA Today is reporting the Ole Miss AD Ross Bjork is a candidate in Nebraska’s AD search. It’s all hear-say, but here’s what Dan Wolken is reporting:
One candidate multiple industry insiders have pointed to as a target with interest from Nebraska is Ole Miss athletics director Ross Bjork, who grew up and went to college nearby in Kansas and is one of the superstar fundraisers in the business.
Were it not for his current program going through a lengthy NCAA enforcement process that uncovered 21 alleged football violations, 15 of which were of the most serious Level 1 variety, and a lack of institutional control charge, he would be a slam dunk for the job.
Bjork, however, didn’t hire Hugh Freeze at Ole Miss, and it’s widely known that the support to keep Freeze until his phone records revealed phone calls to sexually suggestive businesses came from above Bjork’s head. He remains highly respected in the industry and understands the public relations side of the job, completely opposite of the way Eichorst operated.
Interestingly enough, Turnkey Search firm has been hired to handle both the Nebraska athletics director opening and the Ole Miss football coaching job.
Which was then followed up with:
So we still know nothing. And the fact that the Hugh Freeze stuff happened under his watch is kind of a red flag to Nebraska’s notoriously clean AD. (We reported extra text books.)
Anywho, let’s get to some bonafide TV watchin’.
