Pete Burns from theFan reporting it.
Mac as AD? Might as well add a little gas to the fire....
and who the **** is Peter Burns? Sounds like a terrible porn name
I just saw that too. Would seem strange to do both at once. And as much as I've questioned Bohn's ability to pick the next HC, losing an AD will make this even more difficult
hell yes! please let this be true. DOWN WITH BOHN! DOWN WITH BOHN! i wonder who our new AD would be
I'm not thrilled with benson and distefano picking the next AD, neither one of these guys gives a damn about cu athletics, especially football.
Do you have any idea how ridiculous that sounds? "Yay! Bohn should leave! Oh, who the hell would we get to replace him?"
I hope he stays. We don't need to be taking any backward steps at this juncture.
FWIW...I sent a note to Bohn and Distephano yesterday to make myself feel better - based upon a personal discussion I had with Bohn in an airport earlier this season. I got a very short response from Bohn sent from his phone tonight which was strange (had the sent from my Android phone tag - that is how I know)...
Point is that he probably wouldn't bother responding if this was true...Anyways, I am OK with Bohn but maybe becuase I blame those above him more for not letting him fire Hawk last season. I am not sure I will ever get over it - and will always hold a grudge against them. I think they should be gone.
CHris Dempsey who broke the GB firning is also reporting this for the post
Go back a couple of tweets on his timeline. He also says he is convinced Melo to the Nets is done but it won't happen until after Christmas so the Nuggets get a better playoff seed. AKA, he's totally full of BS.
no... i don't have any idea how ridiculous it sounds to want to get rid of an athletic director who is a moron. you say you don't want to take any backward steps but you hope bohn stays to pick the next coach? your post is the one that sounds ridiculous to me
If you're going to fire somebody, you better have a damn good idea who you're going to replace him with. Otherwise, it's a stupid move. Bohn has cred with the admin here. The next guy (assuming this idiotic rumor has any shred of truth to it) won't. Bohn knows all the important boosters. All the sponsors. All the people that help keep this athletic department running. Who's going to step in to those shoes and, oh by the way, hire our next football coach while he's got some spare time?
It's a positively moronic move, if it's true. I'm not going to believe it because it's got to be one of the dumbest things I've ever heard. Don't piss on my wheaties now that Hawk is gone by canning Bohn, too. The two are not connected.
Actually, going after another AD could be another huge step in the right direction. No knock on Bohn, he did a great job getting this program back into shape, but we need to take the next step. Preferably someone with BCS level experience.
Who the F*** is retweeting this garbage?
I think we'd be hard pressed to find an AD better suited to running things in Boulder than Mike Bohn.
edit: Yeah, allbuffs retweeted it. A lot of rumors are going to fly in the next 24 hours on twitter.
Bohn has done great, but has failed at his coaching hires EVERYWHERE. Idaho, SDSU, CU... maybe he just needs an assistant who handles coaching staffs and staff management.
I don't think so. There are better options out there. The major boosters would probably have to open up their wallets, so that probably won't happen.
I like MB. I really do. Nothing but respect, but like Alfred said, how many chances are we going to give this guy to ruin our program with his ****ty coaching hires? Any way you look at it, you can't disagree that he has failed at every stop in his career at hiring HC's.
Marketing wise, fan involvement, I would agree. Hiring coaches No. What we need more than anything is an ADMINISTRATION that realizes having good,winning athletics is a plus,not a negative.
