D1.jobs: New opportunities below at Vanderbilt & Long Beach State. Post your team openings here.
Texas AD Del Conte sat down for a wide-ranging interview with Burnt Orange Nation this week, discussing, among other things, his visible presence on social media. Del Conte explained that while he reports to Prez Fenves, he works for everyone; therefore, if "someone asks me a question and we are asking that same person to use their discretionary income to support our program, they deserve a response from me specifically. I just feel that way." Concerning facilities, Del Conte acknowledged that UT has some work to do, saying that Texas "set the standard for facilities in the late 1990s and early 2000s." Since then, Baylor, Texas A&M and others around UT have either built brand new FB stadiums of conducted massive overhauls. "But every one of our facilities has great bones. They just need to be refreshed. So how far behind are we? We aren’t behind but we need to go back and set the standard is the way I look at it. And we are well on our way." Del Conte also commented on scheduling, noting that signing a home and home deal with Alabama for 2022-23 was atypical given how far out programs are usually booked. "The philosophy has always been to have a big-time opponent." Which the Longhorns have, with matchups against programs like LSU, Michigan, USC and Ohio State in upcoming years. "With the Alabama game, we had Ohio State reach out to me and ask to move our game back a couple years because they were able to schedule Notre Dame. I understood that. I said, 'Okay, but let me find a game before we do that.'" (link)
Arizona Daily Star columnist Hansen takes a look at Arizona AD Heeke's mission to upgrade UA facilities, which so far includes a $66M investment over the next 25 years to renovate FB, softball and swimming facilities. Hansen credits Heeke for coming to UA and enduring a difficult year, asserting that despite issues concerning FB and MBB, Heeke pressed forward to update UA's infrastructure, knowing there was only more to come. Heeke: "The big one is that we have to invest in the rest of the football stadium. That has to be a $100M to $200M effort. We have to somehow embark on that." Despite the improvements, Heeke maintains he doesn't get caught up with what everyone else is doing. "My focus is 'what else do we need?' We're not going to do any wild and crazy things. Those things don't help you on the scoreboard." More from Heeke. (link); Meanwhile, Heeke this week announced that beginning with UA's home opener against BYU on September 1, Arizona will sell beer and wine inside Arizona Stadium during FB games. Beer and wine were previously only available to those in club or box seats. (link)
Arkansas AD Yurachek has announced several staffing changes as part of an extensive restructuring that includes three new deputy ADs. Cromer Peoples will serve as deputy AD for external engagement and administration, overseeing external units such as broadcasts services, communications and ticket sales; Fagg has been named deputy AD for student-athlete experience, overseeing areas including academic services, compliance and student-athlete development; and Deputy AD for Internal Engagement, Finance and Capital Projects Hamilton will continue serving as the department's CFO. In addition, longtime administrators Pohl and Trainor have been elevated to Sr. Assoc. ADs. In addition to her current roles in event management and sports admin for gymnastics and softball, Pohl will oversee a new unit focused on improving guest experiences. Yurachek: "Within our new structure, we will continue to serve our student-athletes, coaches and Razorback fans, both effectively and efficiently, while focusing on our mission of building Razorbacks and champions for life." (link); Here's a look at compensation increases for Razorbacks administrators & coaches. Figures listed include maximum bonus opportunities. Of note, AD Yurachek = $860K. Lots more. (link)
Sports Illustrated legal analyst McCann asserts that Kansas's recently released subpoenas from the Department of Justice is a signal that the DOJ is intensifying the scrutiny with which it is looking into Adidas' dealings. McCann cites the DOJ's January subpoena requesting all communications between KU and specific individuals at Adidas, including all documentation relating to contracts, agreements or unsigned oral agreements. McCann: "The more persons with ties to Adidas who are implicated, the harder it becomes for Adidas executives to portray those persons as acting on their own." Additionally, in regards to contract-related requests, McCann cites "activation investment" payments found in Louisville's contract with Adidas. The payments, McCann submits, are at least nominally for marketing and internship purposes, "but the mechanics of them remain uncertain and open to intrigue." This, he writes, is all within the context of whether these actions expose Adidas criminally or civilly, as Skechers has already filed a suit alleging Adidas unlawfully prevented them from competing for NBA player endorsements. Regardless, Adidas still has a reputation to protect, and while the investigation has yet to significantly impact the company's stock price, McCann points out that "New Balance and Puma have seemingly sensed an opportunity to compete with Adidas for NBA players." More from SI. (link)
NBC Sports offers a look at each 'Power 5' commissioner's take on sports betting and injury reporting based on their responses from media days. An overarching theme from their comments is a desire to protect the integrity of competition as they wait to see how the states in their respective leagues legislate the gambling issue; meanwhile, concerning injury reports, Big 12 Commish Bowlsby and SEC Commish Sankey note that HIPAA and FERPA requirements must be considered. Sankey: "I expect, however, the change in sports gambling could be and will be likely the impetus for the creation of [NFL-type injury] reports in our future. Identifying the proper approach should be the priority, not haste." On the gambling side of the equation, ACC Commish Swofford admits that he "may be one of the most naive people in the world about gambling," but acknowledges that it's been going on illegally for years and says the league will study how states address the issue to determine how best to move forward. Meanwhile, B1G Commish Delany asserts: "We need to continue to educate [student-athletes] about the challenges associated with gambling and the importance of the integrity of the game." For Pac-12 Commish Scott, betting has been legal near the league's footprint for years due to legal books in Las Vegas. "Our concern going forward is really about the types of regulations, infrastructure, and commitment to integrity that other states might have... if there’s some unusual action on a game or some strange movement and timing around the game or reason to be concerned to conduct investigation."

ESPN's Borzello examines the increasingly common practice of HS MBB student-athletes reclassifying to enter college early, allowing some to more quickly enter the NBA Draft while providing MBB HCs the opportunity to recruit the same position with less conflict. Just this past weekend two highly touted prospects announced they would move up a year, including Oregon commit Okoro, who explains: "The year I'm supposed to be in high school, I'm using it to get better. ... For me, development is a really, really huge thing for me. I talked to the coaches and they said if I come in, they're going to use that one year to really work with me." There's also a benefit to reclassifying from a scouting standpoint, as one NBA executive noted: "Analytics value it. All their models are based on what's happened in the past, and in the past, usually your best players have come out early." Still, Kentucky MBB HC Calipari, who has coached several student-athletes that decided to reclassify, cautions that it's not the right choice for everyone: "If you're not mentally mature enough or physically ready, why would you reclassify? ... You're setting somebody up for failure if you're not mentally ready to go into that man's world. ... Are you ready to be a professional? And if you're not, go and get yourself ready so you can make it." (link)
Philadelphia attorney Haverstick tells USA Today that former Louisville MBB student-athletes have a sound argument in their suit alleging the NCAA "acted recklessly" by not clarifying which members of the 2013 MBB team received improper benefits. "If I were those young men and I thought the investigation was done improperly or unfairly as to me or I thought the punishment was arbitrary or capricious or otherwise not the way the NCAA is supposed to administer punishment -- yeah, I’d think I had a case." Haverstick, who represented Pennsylvania State Senator Corman in a suit that resulted in the NCAA overturning sanctions against Penn State related to the Sandusky scandal, explains further that PSU case called into question the NCAA's method for meting out punishment. Therefore, he thinks it's "fair now for other schools and other people affected by sanctions to ask hard questions of the NCAA and find out, 'Did you use the right process when you punished us?'" That said, he advises the former UL student-athletes not to attempt to re-litigate the NCAA's case against UL. "[Instead] I would certainly going forward focus on actual and reputational harm caused by alleged failure of the NCAA to do the investigation properly or to implement the punishment properly."

The top Nike & Adidas summer hoops teams actually met on the court earlier this week in an occurrence that basically never happens. Adidas' Compton Magic won an OT thriller over Nike's Team Takeover in a sold-out tip at Bishop Gorman in Vegas. Part of the story on how the match-up came to be involves the pull of Nike grassroots leader Stevens & Las Vegas Fab 48 co-director Trigonis also notes, "A couple of years ago we had a problem with Merl Code; he was strong-arming teams [into only playing in events he preferred]. So I had a conversation with [Nike executive] Lynn Merritt. I asked him, I said, 'Lynn, do you guys sponsor these teams or do you own these teams?' And he didn't know how to answer that question." CBSSports.com's Parrish hopes such match-ups can be scheduled more often as they pit the best from both sides of the shoe aisle against one another. (link)
Experiencing the World presented by Anthony Travel
Ever been to Lake Oconee in Georgia? If you ever go in the summer, chances are you'll run into plenty of FB coaches as dozens have getaway houses in Reynolds Lake Oconee. What's the draw? Former Virginia Tech boss Beamer says he was the first, now jokes, "Every year, more move here. Sometimes we joke that Reynolds is the place where coaches go to die." Plenty of golf options, plus miles of beaches along the lake seems to be part of the story. Florida's Mullen, Georgia's Smart, Penn State's Franklin, former Wake Forest HC Grobe & lots of others. One wife provides her view, "Look, all these coaches who live here in the summer love it because it’s like they are Peter Pan when they are here and they never have to grow up. They are always playing on the water with their boats and Jet Skis or they’re on the golf course or they’re enjoying cocktails at the 19th hole. But you know what: They need this place. It’s a huge stress release. For a few weeks in July, they can just have fun." (link)

Colorado College's new Ice Hockey arena is coming & Tigers AD Ralph says a spike in ticket prices is not going to happen, points to operational budget projections that use the previous prices "and it works." Ralph also mentions the importance of powerful WiFi in the building so fans can share great moments from within the venue. No plans for concerts. (link); Air Force Acting AD Block notes Colorado Springs as a vital market for Falcons engagement, which could mean playing some games at the new facilities coming online, "We are always excited to explore opportunities to expand our fan base and form partnerships in our local area." (link)
The Star-Telegram's Engel continues on the Baylor saga, says the 10 Jane Does are still playing a major role as the question of if university leadership directly tried to suppress or ignore the claims of rape still looms. Wednesday saw a new suit added to the list as a former student claimed she was abused by a FB student-athlete back in 2016. Engel: "According to sources, however, what Baylor won’t admit is that its investigation was loaded with flaws, starting with the firm it hired. […] More may be seen by the end of the month; a judge ruled that Baylor must turn over student records regarding the Jane Does in the latest motion. […] As long as this case is open, Baylor’s problems continue." (link)
Former Missouri MBB student-athlete Phillips, who was dismissed from the program during the 2017-18 season, says he's been cleared of sexual misconduct & other allegations. Phillips inked a three-page letter, reviews the claims bought as part of the Title IX probe & provides his view on how his junior season got derailed. Of note, "Today, I can finally speak. Today, the Title IX investigation I’ve been undergoing for the last 6 months is finally over. Today, I can finally say that I was found not responsible of the allegations against me of sexual misconduct, rape, exploitation, and stalking. […] When I was kicked off the team, I think then everyone thought I was found guilty." Phillips says he has applied at another university & is awaiting a decision on his admission, "I applied to a school just to be a normal student. I don’t know if I can take going on the court, and having the student section call me a rapist, even though I’ve been cleared. I don’t know if I can deal with that." (linklink)
The bowl game planned for Wrigley Field in Chicago, to match-up squads from the ACC & Big Ten is apparently a no-go now. Looks like part of the impasse is the Chicago Cubs wanting a top tier B1G program, but a query of league schools indicated they'd rather go south for warmer weather. Per a source, "The Cubs wanted to have a higher-placed team and a potentially more excited fan base. The Cubs said they’re not looking for a lower-tier bowl game; they’re very selective in what they do." The Chicago Tribune's Greenstein says negotiations could be revisited. (link)
SB Nation's Brown says in his article title that TV rights money for college athletics is "slowing down," which, of course, is not universally the case, then reframes it as "Someday, massive TV money should start to dry up." Brown's real thesis is that leadership should be thinking much more about how to effectively engage fans to increase revenues connected to affinity & attendance. "Athletic departments need to make it easier, not harder, for fans young and old to love their teams. You don’t do that with schedules so bloated that a student might not get to see a conference football opponent his entire time on campus. You don’t do it by charging 60 bucks a ticket for a game against a lower-level team, forcing your best game to be on a Friday or super late at night, or loading your non-conference schedule with paycheck games." (link)
More Personnel: New Mexico State MBB HC Jans has a restructured deal, no details provided but AD Moccia had this to say: "After three-consecutive seasons with a new head coach, it was imperative for the program to retain him for the long term." (link); Looks like Virginia has added to its Football recruiting staff with Hodges as on-campus recruiting coordinator and Hixson and Bradshaw as recruiting assistants. Per HC Mendenhall this "gets us to the industry standard" of six full-time staffers dedicated to recruiting. (link); Wright State Men's Soccer HC Davis steps aside to "pursue opportunities outside of coaching" and AD Grant promotes AHC Slemker to the top spot. (link); Vanderbilt adds Texas A&M Asst. Dir. of Performance Nutrition Hitchcock as the school's Director of Sports Nutrition. (link, link); Maine Women's Soccer HC Atherley gets a three-year extension. New terms not released but he previously made $71,399.96 annually. (link); South Dakota alum Bennett gets the Women's Golf HC job at his alma mater. He most recently served as Men's Golf HC at Sioux Falls (DII). (link); In leaving Nike next month, Prez Edwards will forfeit more than $7M in restricted stock and retention bonuses, reducing his 2018 compensation from $9.8M to $3M+.

'How to Advance in Your Career When Your Boss Won't Help," comes from Georgetown faculty member & leadership coach Hedges. 1) Create an advocacy team; 2) Prioritize visibility; 3) Find the influencers and offer to help; and, 4) Use positive outside pressure. Hedges, in conclusion, "If you have the option, there’s no question that finding a supportive boss with influence is a direct benefit to your career. But even that may not be enough. Companies are dynamic, and having other ways to advocate for yourself — or having others do it — is a more sustainable approach. Building a range of supporters who can help you grow in diverse ways may be the best advantage you can have." (link)

The Oklahoma-Nike Jordan Brand marriage is worth almost $70M with bonuses. Total supplied product limit for the life of the Jordan Brand deal increases $6.1M from 2017-18 to 2023-24 to $49.4M for the duration of the deal, which runs through 2023-24. Sooners get $19.6M for making the brand switch. Included in the 2014 amendment to the initial contract with Nike is $327,500 in competition bonuses possible for FB, MBB, WBB and Baseball. Switching to Jordan extends the OU contract with Nike to June 30, 2028. AD Castiglione: "Once I noticed that the Jordan brand was interested in moving from the (basketball court) onto a different playing surface, I wanted to make sure that Oklahoma was right in the middle of that discussion. Because of our terrific partnership that we have with Nike, we were able to develop that interest and the discussions took off in December of 2016, and we were able to come together and make this happen." For comparison, Michigan's 15-year deal is $85M in product limit and $88.8M in base comp. (link)
No naming rights deal yet for Northern Illinois' Convocation Center, but Huskies AD Frazier believes the right partner will be identified. Frazier: "We aren’t just going to pair up with a partner because they’re writing us a check. We can’t just put any name up. You can probably think of the names we could throw on there and that just wouldn’t work on a college campus. It’s important and critical we get the right partner and the right price point. […] We’re optimistic we can get this done in short order. But we’re not going to rush this. It really helps we’ve secured new scoreboards. It will help the building become more attractive." (link)
The Davidson Athletic Fund surpassed its FY18 goal thanks to more than 2,400 donors contributing $10.7M. Cash record of $3.6M in current-use funds, nearly $8M in new athletic scholarship commitments and pledges. New AD Clunie: "I am thrilled with the news of the incredible support shown from our alumni, parents and friends during 2017-18. I am also excited to enter the final year of Davidson's capital campaign with such strong momentum, knowing that our athletic program will continue to reward the investment." (link)
Beer at Ballgames: Oregon will expand alcohol sales inside Autzen Stadium to general concession stands. The Ducks will also triple the number of alcohol monitors in the crowd, require a clear bag policy and no longer allow re-entry to games. AD Mullens: "The Autzen Stadium experience is the best and most magical in college football, and we are always looking for ways to enhance that experience for our great fans. These changes also reflect best practices in the industry regarding fan safety and the high priority we place on a safe and positive experience for everyone attending an Oregon football game." (link)
Notable legal developments, both from Law360: "A former Villanova University football player can continue his Pennsylvania federal court lawsuit against the school and the National Collegiate Athletic Association alleging he is owed unpaid wages for his time with the Wildcats, a ruling that diverges from recent cases finding it is not plausible that college athletes are employees." (link); "A former Auburn University basketball coach accused in a fraud and bribery scheme to steer promising basketball players to top-tier college programs was allowed by a New York federal court Thursday to modify his pretrial release terms so he can travel to Georgia, where he and his fiancee recently purchased a house." (link)
Also Noticed: Under Armour posted higher revenue (up 8%) last quarter, but expects its net loss to grow in the face of company restructuring ($79M cost) and decreased product demand. Net loss of $95.5M compared to $12.3M loss during the same period last year.
