@Bobby_Blanco

Anderson on administrative leave from Oct. 1-Aug. 2018. Kevin Plank negotiated severance package that keeps him on payroll through next Aug.

 

 

@Bobby_Blanco

Wallace Loh removed him on Oct 1. He was upset that Anderson sought the Cal AD job.

I'm seeing Gary Williams' name floated by boosters as interim AD.  Don't like it, Gary is not an administrator.  Never liked Anderson, but the success of the program, with football a notable exception, is unquestioned.  Maryland has won more Big 10 titles since entering the conference than any other school.

If Loh is in a snit that Anderson was looking at the Cal job and that's what led to this, that says more about him than Anderson IMO

So he's been gone two weeks and it only now hits the news? Wow.

I was thinking there has to be more to it than that. Everybody does that, even when it's technically a lateral move.

 

And I agree Jim, I could live with Gary as a placeholder until a new AD is found, but need someone else.

Absolutely Mike, everyone is always keeping an eye on the market and talking about jobs.  Not sure there is more to it, however and that's not going to help Loh make the next hire.  It is amazing it took two weeks for that to come out.

On the discussion thread at TT someone said the Kansas board was talking about this yesterday when Dotson picked the Jayhawks over MD. How the hell did they hear about it first?

Good question.  It's odd that MASN broke the news-I didn't even know they covered the Terps

Jeff Ermann is reporting that it is "still a fluid situation."  He says Loh wanted to fire him last weekend but "intervention," I presume Kevin Plank, kept him on board,

Hope the reason cited isn't a cover up for getting out in front of this FBI thing.

To be fair, considering how utterly screwed the Cal athletic department is, is anyone who wants that job someone you want running your department?

In another tweet, Blanco said that while appearing on BTN today they showed Williams as having the AD title. That's...interesting.

I hope that was just an error on BTN's part, or else this is an unmitigated clusterfuck.

Pretty sure they don't. I guess whomever leaked this is just close with Blanco.

Would seem unusual the AD is the only one taking the fall if that's it. You'd think Turgeon and/or an assistant would be out too.

Hopefully, it is unrelated to all the FBI crap.  There has been no mention of MD, in any of it, so not time to worry about that.  I have felt like Anderson has been shopping for a better job for a few years.  and maybe Loh just got tired of it.

I believe Gary has a title something like Assistant Athletic Director in his fundraising role.

There were rumors about him when the Texas job was open. Don't recall hearing him tied to any others, but given his lengthy ties to the west coast it's not surprising he desired to return to that area. But like DJ said, the Cal athletic department is a financial mess right now (of course so was the MD department when he came on).
