I just hope he has time to set up that new governing board with like-minded folks who will help them hire the right person. The TBR are the ones that would screw this up.

RE: Could Noland be headed to UT?
From the things I've heard, Noland definitely has his eye on a political situation - at some point - and maybe more the intermediate-term than the long-term.

Sort of like conference realignments, it's possible some dominoes may start getting played.

Wilsie has said she doesn't want that position, but it's not inconceivable she could be 'drafted', do it on an interim basis, or something along those lines. We could do worse than her, but that is indeed a "safe route". (And I'm well aware some/many of you aren't fond of her.)

Brian Nolands don't grow on trees, but I think we all knew that.

Things may start happening fast:

"the rest of the story"

"A search is expected to begin immediately after the Board of Trustees meetings on Wednesday and Thursday.

DiPietro said his goal is to begin preliminary interviews this summer and bring finalists on campus in the fall so he can make a recommendation to the trustees at the October meeting and have someone in place by the spring 2017 semester
."

Ok. I just saw a suggestion in this thread that ETSU needs a law school. That is totally ridiculous. This area is overrun with young, incompetent attorneys as it is. Belmont just got accredited; LMU is going along; Appalachian I guess is still afloat. It's too many.

Talk about knee jerk. That was weeks ago. Run and tell the foreman before he diverts the precious football plans to a law school. While you're at it, replace "football" with "law school" in your thoughts and see if you sound like someone you don't want to.

I have no idea what your point is.

RE: Could Noland be headed to UT?
My point is that your knee jerk response to the idea of a law school was flippant and unappreciative of the parallel to football. Noland's "big" career move at ETSU has been to bring back football. It was suggested that he would see this through (let's state to the point of a fully completed stadium, all tiers). It was suggested he might also do something like a law school (and, not stated but something else I've heard suggested is a dental school). The reaction to a mere suggestion--"totally ridiculous. This area is overrun by young, incompetent lawyers as it is"--was highly unflattering. Many people against football at ETSU might utter something similar: "A multimillion dollar football program is totally ridiculous! We will never be UT or VA Tech. This area is overrun by enough football as it is."

The law school isnt going to happen, the market is indeed very saturated- that is just the truth and it has nothing to do with Noland

Dave Hart announces he will retire next June. So everything I was hearing was apparently true. Hopefully the Noland talk was just that...talk, let's hope.

It happened exactly how it should. Put the lawsuit to bed, and the leading parties exit stage left. Noland will be fine for this cycle.

RE: Could Noland be headed to UT?
Notice that Noland's "denial" yesterday was not exactly that. It appeared to be a PC statement (possibly) prepared by his agent. If you read or listen to the words very carefully, it's exactly what he's 'supposed' to say, but leaving open the possibility, if they seek him out.
He's not going to publicly lobby for the job, but possibly his agent could, or more likely his agent is getting a feel for the lay of the Knoxville land.
"Plausible deniability".

To be clear, I'm not saying he *is* seeking the job, just that his "denial" didn't strike me as anything close to absolute.
