Dear Posse: I attend all the home games, and I share your frustration with the team’s record. The coaching staff and team members also are not satisfied. All of us want to see wins. In our search for a new Athletic Director, we’re working hard to find a great new leader for the athletics program. I appreciate you for sharing your ideas on strategies to enhance the program. We ask that you continue supporting the team through the remainder of the season as we look forward to brighter times ahead. Thank you for your ongoing interest, concern and support for Tulane.
My suggestions were:
Hire a dynamic Athletic Director whose expertise is hiring successful coaches….Fund raising will take care of itself when consistent winning is achieved.
Increase salaries to attract, hire and keep a successful Coach, and qualified coordinators and assistants.
Establish a Physical Education Major to attract and keep good athletes….We had this major in the 70’s and we competed very well.
Use the NCAA academic standards to admit and retain good athletes.. The higher, self imposed Tulane academic standard has been a disaster.
Recruit Junior College players, and accept their college credits.
Feel free to share my suggestions with your staff.
Once I see these things in place my $10,000,000 check will clear. Lol
