Interesting. Looks like Tulane has a history of presidential override on coach hiring decisions.
And the funny thing is we've had some very talented AD's over the years, Gladchuck, Kevin White, Sandy B, and then....well let's not even go there!

Great point. Maybe we should hire our next Prez from the list of our former ADs. That would shake up the academic world.

I don't dislike Fitts. (And I don't think there's a snowball's chance in hell of this happening!) But Dr. Kevin White would be an interesting University President!

Why do you keep "going there" while proclaiming avoidance ??
President Fitts , B of A , it's put up or forever hold your peace time . Make Tulane ATHLETICS relevant and top 30 again .

Congrats to Perry, who may have made more money, but never had it as good as he did at Tulane. Well deserved!

One thing I've always wanted to ask Coach Clark is how close he was to going to GA Tech when Cremins took the South Carolina job, then backed out.
