Post something of merit and I'll retract my statement. Something tells me not to wait around the keyboard for that to occur.

B2Bomber would be all ver you for a post like that.

I like what Fiore has done at Stony Brook. I wonder if he'd have any interest. I think the position won't be very attractive if the reporting structure at FU does not change.

I've been checking NCAA.org's job site daily for the past week or so and have been coming up with nada.

Agree on the reporting structure. Hofstra hired a new "Vice President and Director of Athletics" last week, who reports directly to the president.

Re: Fordham to search for new AD

McLaughlin Named AVP for Athletic Alumni Relations,
*
Search for Athletic Director Opened
*
NEW YORK (May 24, 2012) - Fordham University Executive Director of Athletics Frank McLaughlin will be promoted to the new position of associate vice president of student affairs for athletic alumni relations and external affairs/athletic director emeritus at the University on July 1, 2012, it was announced today. The University has also announced a national search to fill the position of athletic director, held by McLaughlin for 27 years.
*
“Frank McLaughlin is an institution at Fordham, and under his leadership the University’s athletic program has matured and prospered,” said Joseph M. McShane, S.J., president of Fordham. “We are delighted to retain his long experience and wisdom as we open a new chapter in the University’s athletic tradition.”
*
In his new position, McLaughlin’s responsibilities will include providing leadership for institutional efforts focused on athletic alumni relations, fundraising and external athletic affairs as well as supporting the overall University fundraising and campaign efforts with a special focus on intercollegiate athletics. He will also work closely with varsity coaches and athletic department staff in identifying fundraising needs and opportunities for individual programs, and advancing efforts in support of same.
*
“I am grateful, and humbled, by all the opportunities Fordham has given me, including this latest one,” McLaughlin said. “It has been an honor to lead the University’s athletic program, and I’m excited to step into this new role while continuing to mentor student athletes.”
*
McLaughlin has been at Fordham since taking over as the athletic director at his alma mater in 1985. After serving as the athletic director for 13 years, McLaughlin was promoted to executive director of intercollegiate athletics and recreation in the spring of 1998.
*
The University is assembling a search committee for the athletic director position, and will pursue highly qualified candidates from across the country, with the goal of filling the position during the fall semester.
*
“The athletic program has expanded significantly and become a professional operation on Frank’s watch,” Senior Vice President for Student Affairs Jeffrey L. Gray said. “I admire him personally and professionally. He is an outstanding husband and father, and the many achievements we’ve made in athletics are due to his strong leadership and good judgment. I look forward to working with Frank in his new capacity, where he will continue to serve the University and the athletic department in advancing our important mission.”
*
Under McLaughlin’s tenure, the Fordham University athletic department has experienced numerous changes. Among those has been the recent renovation of the Bahoshy Softball Field, a new football locker room, new basketball locker rooms and renovations to Jack Coffey Field and the Murphy Field complex. *Both fields have been resurfaced with state of the art FieldTurf, with Coffey Field adding lights, a baseball press box and a new scoreboard. Murphy Field, a multi-purpose athletic facility, added tennis courts, a softball field, and a soccer, football and recreational field, all lighted. *Under McLaughlin’s watch, the athletic department constructed the Walsh Training Center, the first varsity training center at Fordham dedicated exclusively to student-athletes.
*
McLaughlin has also overseen the addition of eight full-time coaching positions, the promotion of several coaches from part-time to full-time status and the addition of full-time staffing in the sports medicine, strength and conditioning and sports information offices. He also directed the addition of women’s soccer and rowing as a varsity sports.
*
During McLaughlin’s time as athletic director, the Rams experienced success both on and off the playing fields. Since 1985, Fordham has won 26 conference championships, including the 2011 Atlantic 10 softball title last spring, the 2010 Atlantic 10 Women's Swimming Championship, and two Patriot League football championships.
*
Academically, Fordham annually ranks among the leaders in the number of student-athletes named to the Atlantic 10 Commissioner’s Honor Roll and has routinely been among the national leaders in NCAA Academic Progress Rates, ranking 18th in the country in 2011.
*
A 1969 Fordham graduate and standout basketball student-athlete, McLaughlin captained the Rams during his senior season and was drafted by the New York Knicks following graduation. *He went on to become an assistant coach at the College of the Holy Cross and after a season there returned to Fordham as an assistant under Richard “Digger” Phelps in 1970-1971, helping the Rams to a 26-3 record (.897) and an NCAA Tournament appearance. *Fordham finished the season with a ranking of ninth in the nation.
*
McLaughlin moved to Notre Dame with Phelps the following year where he was a major part of the Fighting Irish’s program through his outstanding recruiting and academic guidance. *He helped the Irish to consistent national rankings and NCAA Tournament bids.
*
In 1977, McLaughlin was named the head coach at Harvard University, where he remained for eight years. *In his final season he compiled a 15-9 mark, and currently ranks fourth in both seasons and wins in Crimson history.
*
McLaughlin and his wife, Susan, have three daughters: Tara Marie (a 1999 Fordham graduate), Mary Heather, (a 2002 Fordham graduate) and Colleen Patrice (a 2005 Fordham graduate). *The McLaughlins reside in Briarcliff Manor, N.Y.
*
Founded in 1841, Fordham is New York City’s Jesuit University. With 22 men’s and women’s varsity sports teams, the Fordham Rams are members of the NCAA Division I and compete in the Atlantic 10 Conference in baseball, basketball, cross country, golf, indoor and outdoor track, women’s rowing, soccer, softball, swimming and diving, tennis and volleyball. The Fordham Rams compete in the NCAA FCS Patriot League for football, winning the 2003 and 2007 Patriot League championship.

Note, no mention of regular season championships in any of our sports as those don't count! Men's soccer this season and softball a few seasons ago. That's it, I think.

Re: Fordham to search for new AD

Thanks for posting the press release, ace. I'm surprised this is happening so quickly. In a conversation I had with regard to the new state-of-the-art fitness center currently under construction in the Ramskellar space, my source said she "heard" there will soon be a search for a new AD and that Frank would stay on for the 2012-13 academic year. Glad she was wrong. Hallelujah!

Perhaps they felt that with the new schools joining the conference that the move needed to happen now.

I would like to hear who people would see as good candidates. People on the FU board have mentioned Fiore who is at Stony Brook and has done a good job of building their facilities up. Started from nowhere really.

I would be interested in an assistant AD from one of the better a10 programs. Lastly, had Jack Hayes not recently taken the AD spot at Brown, I would have gone after him.

This could be big for the conference. Fordham is a sleeping giant.

Any chance a new AD could get support for a new arena?

Tough to say. A chance no doubt. We need reporting structure to change and have the AD report directly to the president. We have a buffoon of a VP as a middle man right now. We also announced a new Chairman of the BOT earlier this week which was also big news. Hoping we do things right and make the change I mention and do a true national search for an AD.

There are some who claim we have some big time alumni who have not donated because of our AD. That would go a long way towards a new arena if true.

Could be. I'm still stunned at how quickly it all went down. I was under the impression that the 2012-2013 academic year would be Frank's swan song. The decision to "promote" him effective July 1 must have been made in the last week or so. I wonder if Linda Bruno will be on the search committee. The University brought her in as a consultant in its search for a new head men's basketball coach (and women's coach as well). Maybe she pulls a Dick Cheney and recommends herself!
