Any solid candidates for the next AD once she retires?

Kudos to Kathy and all the coaches and administration for leading a well-rounded athletic department that all Broncos should be very proud of!

Well said, she's taken a lot of criticism over the years-much of it unjustified.

Hawks has done a really great job turning his freshman into contributors, I will never understand the criticism of him. Some folks aspire Western to be Georgetown or UCLA on a MAC budget. Get real!

I think KB has been tremendous for WMU; but some of the criticism has been fair. Keeping Culhane as long as she did wasn't right, and there have been a few other things, but overall we have been blessed to have KB. It wouldn't shock me to see he being offered an AD spot at some P5 schools. Don't anyone say Minnesota.

OMG, Fleck is poaching our AD?!?

Whoa! Is that what Pepper's Uncle told you?!

This would be the year to retire given that WMU athletics are at or near the top of the MAC. Football Basketball and Hockey having or have had tremendous seasons. Throw in soccer, tennis , women's ball and don't forget the men's baseball championship. There is a winning rhythm going on and this would be the legacy to leave if you are thinking of retiring. This year is one for the record books when it comes to WMU sports achievement.

KB's final accomplishment will be leading WMU to the American Athletic Conference topped off with a new downtown arena.

UA is fine, imo. Please don't use state money for a basketball arena, and if you're loaded and want to donate money to something, find something better to spend it on.

Western doesn't use 'state funds' for athletic facilities, they are all privately funded. If you want to comment on a topic at least do the basic research so you don't come across as a complete fool.
