"What do you value in a potential new Ole Miss Athletics Director?"
By the 30th of June, 2012, Pete Boone will no longer be the Ole Miss Athletics Director. At least, that's what we Rebel fans were told when the AD search committee and some basic details of the search were released late last week. Already, a few names have surfaced as potential replacements, all of which have likely been floated due to their Ole Miss/Mississippi connections and their supposed penchants for fundraising - names like Austin Barbour (yes, you heard right), Under Armor Marketing Director Walker Jones, and Central Arkansas AD Brad Teague.
Bgut what exactly are Ole Miss fans looking for in an AD? Are connections to Ole Miss or Mississippi in general important? What about ties with the Southeastern Conference? Is experience in some sort of management capacity as it relates to an athletics program a must? In short, what would you look for were you a member of the aforementioned search committee?
