DRC: Dickenson the right person for UNT’s athletic director

Recommended Posts

I'm grateful to Hank for his many years of service to UNT, but I don't want him or any other member of RV's leadership team to become our next AD. I never heard Hank speak out against what was going on. At best he turned a blind eye to problems that have plagued our athletics. In my opinion, that doesn't merit getting the AD job. If Minnisota doesn't snag NIU's AD, he'd be a good option.

You can't win the gold medal if you don't stick the dismount. I am confident the Prez realizes this. 

Have I mentioned this is a 2 step process?

I understand because of your distance living away and all but I know for a fact he's contacted folks about it around town.  

I promise you, he wants the job.

I believe you.  My second point is that there are plenty of people who want him to get the job not because he's the best candidate but because it help keep status quo and keep them employed.

Completely agree.

He wont be the next AD

Exactly.  This is Chico after Dodge's firing all over again.  He wanted the job badly, a lot of people--and key people--were very vocal in their support of him, he brought experience and continuity to the table, but he was ruled out from the get-go.

 

EDIT: I just read Billy See's post.

I have no problem with people campaigning for Hank, as long as they can also name other legitimate candidates and explain why Hank has more talent and potential as an AD than they do.

If someone thinks Hank should be the guy and they haven't a clue about other candidates outside of Denton, then their argument has no legs to stand on whatsoever. Just like people who wanted Chico because he did better than Mccarney and they didn't know enough other coaches outside of the name head coaches in CFB.

Still spitting Fire!

I would rather have Alan Ward as AD than Hank and I am not a fan of Ward, but at least he left to get more professional development, Hank remained on this staff and is tied to its failures on many levels

Damn. I value my privacy so I don't use facebook, or I'd post some extreme comments on that pile of trash. The foolishness that goes on down there is incredible. Based on the article, the only sensible idea from it is NT should hire someone from A&M.

I'm speechless and pissed off that somebody had nerve to write this story. Wake up people out there including George, its 2016 and I don't want to eat the same damn bologna sandwich everyday.

Kim Phillips is VP at the Denton CVB. She doesn't represent the university, the athletic department or the Wretched Comical. She writes a weekly column on Denton CVB stuff. Past columns such weighty subjects as Denton being ready to host dog shows and there is a new "Welcome Central Mural" inside the "Discover Denton Welcome Center." This is the level of article that is endorsing Hank.

Express you discontent and I doubt you will see more articles like this. I wonder if anything she has written before got this level of notice?

By the way, I didn't know there was a Discover Denton Welcome Center.

Yeah, I had to look her up, found out the same thing.  So what I get from the article is that Denton must always look inward never outward mentality.  There are some benefits to that for the tight-knit community that Denton is, but this is not one of those situations.

At least she's just cheer leading for a local rather than trying to engage in a public campaign with a thinly veiled intent of keeping herself employed.

I therefore harbor no ill will toward her.

I would hope the candidate that eventually gets the job demonstrates a knowledge of specific UNT problems and offers unique solutions to those problems during the interview process. 

Any candidate that shows up, knows nothing about the UNT situation, and merely relies on his resume as an Asst AD at P5 U should be thanked and summarily dismissed.

I don't know about Denton, but most places the CVB is NOT a part of the Chamber of Commerce. However, they tend to publish very chamber-like material. It's always stuff about why you should <<fill in the blank>> in Denton, or Ft Worth, or wherever. It's not so much an inward focus as a pure promotional focus. That's what this one was - pure promotion. 

I'll bet the CVB does a search beyond Denton when looking for new blood! 

Plus, have you ever had to come up with material for a weekly column? The first few months are easy, then later it's hard. Sometimes you get desperate for material.

Well great. Since I visited the Denton CVB website I'm now seeing their ads everywhere. 

Perhaps she doesn't care at all about Hank and it's all a complicated click bait plot.
