The AD Shuffle
Two stories of note are out about SEC West athletic directors. First, there are reports that Frank Broyles is being forced out at Arkansas. If true, Houston Nutt has just lost his reserve firepower in the Mitch Mustain debacle. Broyles has been at the center of that ongoing crisis supporting Nutt and making odd comments to alums. Grant Hall has a good run down of all the drama. Fayetteville produces one bizarre story after another these days. Broyles is older than dirt though, so it makes some sense to remove him. However, Broyles is one of the most respected ADs in the country.
In other, more expected news, Skip Bertman has announced his intention to step down as LSU AD next year. Skip has presided over a hell of a run by LSU athletics, including a football national title and a Final Four appearance. Now if they could only get back to Omaha, where Skip was a fixture during his days as baseball coach. All signs point to Georgia Tech AD Dan Radakovich taking the reigns in Tigertown.
