In an interview last month, University President Mary Sue Coleman emphasized that she will seek advice from a small advisory committee, but that the final decision would be hers and hers alone.
Though at the time Coleman said she did not have a committee assembled, the names of individual committee members who will aid Coleman in the process were released this morning.
Provost Teresa Sullivan, Tim Slottow, executive vice president and chief financial officer, and men’s basketball head coach John Beilein will serve on the committee to advise Coleman. Additionally, Prof. Percy Bates, the faculty athletic representative, and Liz Barry, the managing director of the Life Sciences Institute and a former University associate vice president and deputy general counsel, will serve on the committee.
A full job description for the position was also released this morning. According to the release, duties will remain consistent with Martin’s current duties — essentially managing all activities of the overall department.
We have heard that Bill Bates (Miami OH AD) is in a strong position at this time. Some seem to think David Brandon while other like Bob DeCarolis who is (Oregon State's AD) and use to be at Michigan's athletic department. Also do not count out Bob Bowlsby (Stanford AD) who was at Iowa with MSC when she was at Iowa. Does he want to leave a great athletic program which has a lot more sports and money at Stanford or does he want to be in charge of a football elite program?
Will there be anymore candidates or does there even need to be any added.
