Possible AD Candidate?

Bob DeCarolis. Spent 19 years with the University of Michigan. Initiated the first of it's kind Nike Sponsorship deal (so we have HIM to thank for the Swoosh that is on everything that we own with Michigan on it). Also was the brainchild of the Michigan Brick Program. Former softball coach at Michigan and had a winning program, FWIW...

Has overseen and transformed the OSU Beaver's Athletic department from a $12M annual loser to a +$25M OSU.

That ain't too shabby in the town of Corvalis with a population of less than 50,000 - half the size of Ann Arbor...which means that when they have a home game, the town more than doubles in size...

Of course, it helps to have all the Microsoft money right up the road.
