(Watch) Gene Smith: Inside The Commission On College Basketball
Southern Illinois Chancellor Montemagno decides to make a change atop his athletic department as Salukis AD Bell will not have his contract renewed & Special Asst. to the Chancellor Kill will oversee the unit. Kill, of course, formerly led SUI FB before doing the same at Northern Illinois & Minnesota. Montemagno says Kill will lead for the immediate future with a full search at some point down the road. Kill indicates he's not sure yet if he wants the gig on a permanent basis, however, "I sweat, bled at this place. I owe the place, because I went a lot of good places because of here. It's a tough time right now, but people don't realize it was tough when we came in here. We had issues with the campus, this and that. You start winning, everybody forgets that." Bell's exit comes with chatter around his reported push to buyout the contract of MBB HC Hinson, who looks to have had the support of Montemagno. (link)
Maryland selects Turnkey Search to aid in the selection of a new boss in College Park. The Terps also now have an internal committee to help guide the process that includes notable donor Gossett, who just recently committed $21.25M for an Academic & Personal Excellence center, as well as Field Hockey HC Meharg, Engineering Dean Pines, Prez Loh's Chief of Staff Eastman, FAR Hadley, Ollie’s Bargain Outlet chairman/CEO & UMD Foundation Board trustee Butler & others. Per the Baltimore Sun, the search is expected to take four months. Loh: "A national search means that we seek and consider all qualified candidates. A confidential search means that we secure the privacy of all candidates. The only candidate who will be identified publicly is the one named as the new Athletic Director." (link)
Notre Dame finally moves on its multimedia & hospitality verticals, selects JMI Sports & Legends to handle "sales, marketing, hospitality, media rights and branding services on a local and national level." Fighting Irish AD Swarbrick: "Both Legends and JMI Sports not only demonstrated superior appreciations of our culture and our mission, but also their willingness to creatively pursue features that are 100 percent Notre Dame-centric. Each company has unique and specific strengths to offer, so we asked them to combine those strengths to create something transformational for Notre Dame. We believe this partnership recognizes the value of the Notre Dame brand and offers enough creativity and innovation to return significant revenue opportunities for all parties to the agreement. We expect that resulting new initiatives will provide corporate sponsors and Notre Dame fans new, engaging and entertaining ways to connect with our University and its athletic program." (link)
The College Football Playoff will move forward with its normal protocols & procedures as an expansion to eight teams is not in the cards, though the group thought about having some fun with Big Ten Commish Delany by texting him during vacation they were thinking of adding four more. Mountain West boss Thompson: "I think we’re in a tremendous position. Where this championship has gone in four years is phenomenal." Big 12 Commish Bowlsby: "We want to know what they were thinking and why they think it. We have to be willing to say, ‘OK, 13 honest people go into a room and make the right decisions. Some of those right decisions are made by individual vantage points. We always talk about that process, but we think we got it right the first time." (link); Bowlsby also points to Oklahoma AD Castiglione, a new member of the CFP committee, believes he'll be a "terrific rep" & wouldn't be surprised if he eventually serves as chair.

More Alston/Jenkins case updates from USA Today's Berkowitz: "Judge in Alston/Jenkins cases challenging NCAA's athlete-pay limits reacts to NCAA request for delay to start of trial from Dec. 2018 to at least June 2019 by asking lawyers to check calendars for weeks this July, August and September. In addition to signaling about potentially starting trial this summer, judge in Alston/Jenkins cases challenging NCAA's athlete-pay limits makes several moves intended to make a trial go faster (e.g., opening statements and direct expert testimony to be submitted in writing)." (link)
Fox2Now in St. Louis reports it's seen a letter sent from Missouri AD Sterk to former Tigers academic tutor Kumar that "revealed (Kumar) provided impermissible academic benefits to enrolled student-athletes. Such conduct is contrary to NCAA rules. Moreover, such conduct is is a serious violation of academic integrity standards of the University of Missouri, and the antithesis of our core values of respect, responsibility, discovery and excellence." MU has disassociated with Kumar & the only official word from the university is the expectation of completing the investigation by the end of the summer. (link)
Today in the Fulmer.ticker: The Tennessee AD touched on his priorities for the department, "Most of it is internal to make ourselves, you know, better, and give our coaches a chance to be the best, but also to show our warmth for each other, that we care about each other, that we care about our athletes — which we do a pretty good job of that — and that we care about our university and our city. Those are certainly on the priorities list. But as it always is, it gets back to wins and losses and record and how you manage just all the things that go on with academics, with social [lives], with development, injuries, all those things." On his staff, "There’s some other folks that will come online, but no major shakeups with the senior staff, because, like I said, we’re pretty good there. We’ve added a person to that, and we’ve changed some responsibilities. There’s some more that I’ll get done here in the next couple of weeks." (link)'s Norlander gets feedback from some MBB HCs on the Rice Commissions recommendations. One viewpoint: "I don't know how others feel, but right or wrong this report is one of the very last things on my mind. Too much other important stuff with recruiting and semester ending occupying my thoughts." Indiana's Miller with another, "Say you have three guys going pro like Indiana had last year, they all stay in until the draft. On June 28 I have seven scholarship players I'm accounting for. I think that's fine. It's good. They can always come back to school. But OK, I'm on the other side of the fence. I have eight men on my roster. Do I not add anyone to my team until [the end of June]? It's all good for the kids, but they're firing coaches literally every year, in two- or three-year spans, for not going to the tournament. I'm not even talking about winning, just not going to the tournament. So if we do this, how do you build a roster? [...]  It's not like all of the sudden in 2015 the game got bad. Can they clean this up? I don't know. I think it will be hard." More, including thoughts from Notre Dame's Brey & Saint Joseph's boss Martelli. (link)

Amazon has re-upped with the NFL for its Thursday Night Football streaming deal. ESPN's Rovell says the agreement is a 30% premium on last year's, "worth around $65M." (link); Recode's Kafka: "Audience for NFL streams of games is a tiny fraction of broadcast, cable audience. Until the league strikes an exclusive deal with a tech company > a TV company, it is just experimenting." (link); Further, Amazon's Q1 net profit doubled to $1.6B as its advertising & web services divisions continue to pick up steam. Amazon also announced Prime membership was moving from $99 annually to $119. (link)

Former Tennessee/Florida State/ECU AD Hart continues into his second month of a six-month consulting agreement with the Pirates and with the hire of MBB HC Dooley behind him, Hart will now delve into the financial situation in Greenville, one he calls "complex." Hart: "We've got to get to the point, and it's not an overnight fix, but we've got to get to where we're not talking about a deficit. We've got to get to the point where we've got a reserve. If we're going to compete in the American, and this is the biggest thing that's occurring in my opinion in a very brief time, when we moved from Conference USA to the American, one thing that we all have to accept and agree upon is our expectations have to be met with our commitment. They have to go hand in hand. We can't operate the program on the same finances as we did in Conference USA, not if we want to be in the top third of the American Athletic Conference. There's a correlation there, if you look at the teams who are in the top third in basketball and football, they are also the teams who are in the top third of the commitment, financially-speaking. ... You have to have a plan. Money's not just going to start raining from the skies. Some of it is private funding, some of it is cooperation and participation, some of it is where it's feasible from the university's perspective, some of it is you have to generate new revenue and you've got to get people back in the seats." (link); The Pirates are more than 2,500 tickets behind pace from a year ago, as only 10,185 FB season tickets have been sold as of Wednesday. (link)
James Madison AD Bourne updates on the Duke Club in this edition of The Bourne Dialogue. The group held the 2018 Duke Club Golf Classic last week where donors were able to interact with student-athletes. JMU breaks ground today on the Union Bank & Trust Center, future home to the basketball programs, though fundraising for the project is not yet complete. The Dukes have a new planned giving program called the Morrison-Ehlers Athletics Society and have replaced the DC25 program with two separate ones - the Young Alumni Program and the Student Duke Club. Currently 800 tickets ahead of last year's pace for FB season tickets as 3,420 have already been moved - goal is 7K. Annual fund giving is up 28% thanks in part to the bump in ticket sales. More.

North Carolina's Center for Research in Intercollegiate Athletics releases a 'Power 5 Athlete-Centric Expense Report,' finds annual full grant-in-aid for a P5 student-athlete is valued at $58K, while out-of-state comes in at $78K & privates check in at $99K. Eight categories of expenses considered as part of the study & here are some good nuggets: "institutions spend an average of $32,350 per athlete on athlete-centric expenses outside of athletic aid […] The institutions percentage of expenses devoted towards these eight categories was inversely correlated with their total athletics expenses (r = -.573), implying that while institutions with lower budgets spend less across these categories, they spend a higher percentage of their budgets on them. These categories likely reflect many of the core priority expenses of an athletic department, regardless of budget." Lots more. (link)
Northern Illinois AD Frazier recruits Memphis Assoc. AD for Sport Services/SWA Vinson to DeKalb to serve as Senior Assoc. AD for Sport Administration. Vinson will be the sport facilitator for MBB, Women's Soccer & Wrestling, be the main point of contact for NIU campus partners & oversee Compliance. Frazier: "She is a rising star in athletics administration with extensive experience in compliance and sports administration. The experience she has gained at Clemson, UCF and Memphis, along with her knowledge of the Mid-American Conference from her time at Akron, will be a great asset to NIU. I love that she brings the perspective of a former student-athlete as well as a highly-skilled administrator." (link)
Tyler Summitt, former Louisiana Tech WBB HC and son of the late Tennessee Women's Basketball HC Pat Summitt, has created the Pat Summitt Leadership Group with the intention of "converting his mother's leadership lessons into a multi-dimensional resource for private businesses and schools." He put his MBA on hold to found the group, with the help of consultants Ira and Kim Blumenthal. The first event was this week in Atlanta, as former Lady Vol star Parker and former UT Women's Athletic Director Cronan addressed 300 Coca-Cola employees. Summitt: "I think she was a trailblazer for women, not just women’s basketball. She was someone who took young girls and turned them into strong women. ... I see my role as protecting my mom's legacy." (link)
More Personnel: The contract for new Southern MBB HC Woods is worth a base of $125K annually, plus incentives. (link); Purdue FB HC Brohm gets an enhanced deal, now seven years worth $29M, $25M of which is guaranteed. Buyout has jumped a bit over the next couple of years. (link); Vermont WBB HC Day resigns. (link); Loyola Chicago AD Watson with thoughts on the new deal for MBB HC Moser, "When I’m sitting on the sideline and watching us knock off Kansas State and you’re going to the Final Four, sure, you think about, ‘Man, are we going to be able to retain the guy who’s leading this program and we feel is the perfect fit for our university?' Am I nervous? I’d be lying if I said no. At the same time, I knew that Porter (Moser) was a Chicago guy, someone who has worked so hard to build this program and was really committed to continue to see it flourish." (link); Delaware Women's Tennis HC Travis steps down after 26 years. (link); Northern Iowa Wrestling HC Schwab gets a three-year extension that could keep him in Cedar Falls through 2024.

Penn State AD Barbour, who was also the first female athletic director at Tulane and Cal, doesn't want to be known as a "really good female athletic director," but rather "an athletic director who led capably and led well." Barbour chatted with the PSU student paper, The Daily Collegian, about her lifelong love of sports, which led to playing WBB and Field Hockey at Wake Forest, and eventually her professional career in athletics administration. Barbour: "If I could spend all day, every day with student-athletes and coaches, I would be the happiest camper in the world. ... I could have remained a coach forever. I had an opportunity on a daily basis as a field hockey and lacrosse coach to impact very deeply 25 student-athletes. I made the decision that for the long run…I’d rather have the opportunity to impact 800, 900, 1,000 student athletes every year." (link)
More details on a multi-use stadium in Mission Valley as San Diego State AD Wicker showed new images and "specifics on how the proposed 35,000-seat stadium at the site could morph into a 55,000-seat facility for the NFL." Populous continues working on the design. "Among the details released about the potential stadium expansion for an NFL team was a perforated aluminum panel exterior, influenced by the sailboats found in San Diego harbor. This feature would provide those looking from the outside with dynamic color changes throughout the day, while dynamic LED lighting would draw attention to the state-of-the-art facility at night. The stadium interior would feature more than 82 suites, including field level, lower bowl sideline and upper sidelines, five different club sections (totaling approximately 6,500 seats), 50 loge boxes with lounge access, two end zone party decks and six exterior balconies."

Texas A&M Senior Assoc. AD for Facilities & Construction Hurley chats with 1.Question co-host @TaiMBrown & the pair cover the coordination of multi-million dollar building projects. Hurley specifically talks about one of (if not the) biggest renovation projects in college athletics history, the $450 million upgrade to the FB's Kyle Field; noting he doesn't expect to see an endeavor of that scope anywhere in the industry, anytime soon. Hurley also says the biggest challenges those in facilities face are budgetary concerns, scope of the facility, and time to completion. More. (link)
Reports indicate Ole Miss FB student-athlete Patterson will be granted immediate eligibility at Michigan. From the Detroit News: "An agreement has been reached among the NCAA, Michigan and Ole Miss, according to the source, and with the completion of some paperwork, Patterson will be eligible to play this fall." No confirmation from the Wolverines yet. (link); Former Miami (FL) FB student-athlete & notable music artist Thomas says he had challenges maintain eligibility last season as his beats were getting attention from some major names, like Rick Ross. Thomas: "They kept reminding me, 'Boy if we had a game this Saturday, you won’t be playing.' They were trying to take away my love, football. You can’t take that away from me. If somebody takes football away from me right now, Imma find my way back around it. Imma be coaching, doing something." (link)
Sports Illustrated legal expert McCann breaks down Ploetz v. NCAA, "the First Legal Battle Over CTE to Reach Trial." The proceedings begin on June 11 & if successful, here's how McCann believes college FB could be impacted, "NCAA witnesses will be forced to answer questions under oath about player safety with jurors watching them. Also, the viability of key defense theories against the concussion lawsuit—including assumption of risk and lack of causation—will be tested for the first time. Retired players and their attorneys will certainly gain important insights from this trial that could dramatically influence whether other former players choose to settle their claims or go to trial. The fallout of such decisions could influence how the NCAA designs game rules and protects student-athletes." Lots more. (link)

Selection Sunday will be on March 17th." Rothstein is also a great Twitter follow if you want a stream of MBB scheduling match-ups for next season. (link); The AT&T-Time Warner trial testimony wrapped yesterday. Closing arguments set for Monday. Lots of eyes & inquiring minds following this one.

From HBR: Gartner surveyed 3,700 employees & managers across a number of industries & conducted a couple hundred interviews with HR directors in an attempt to answer this question: What are the best managers doing to develop employees in today’s busy work environment? After sorting through 90 variables, four distinct leadership profiles were identified: Teacher Managers, Always-On Managers, Connector Managers & Cheerleader Managers. Key takeaways: "There is very little correlation between time spent coaching and employee performance. It’s less about the quantity and more about the quality. […] Those hypervigilant Always-on Managers are doing more harm than good. […] The employees of these managers (Connectors) are three times as likely as subordinates of the other types to be high performers." More. (link)
