Chris Zorich named AD
He’s no Schumaker or Dildy but should be much better than Denisha.

RE: Chris Zorich named AD
Zorich joined twitter today (@chris_zorich) and seems real excited.

Fwiw, Ken Kavanagh is gloating over this hire. Kavanagh was Bradley AD back when they made Sweet 16 beating Kansas and Pitt (and went into the tank right after he left). He took over FGCU and built that program ground-up into the Sweet 16.

Hopefully that reference bodes well.

RE: Chris Zorich named AD
Getting an AD on board should remove a huge stumbling block for finding new mens and womens basketball coaches. Any news on that front?

RE: Chris Zorich named AD
Quote:As of Tuesday morning, Chris Zorich had not yet seen his Chicago State athletic director’s office. He hadn’t been given keys or the figures in the athletic budget.

Once he found the office, he would also find a stack of applications for the men’s and women’s basketball coach openings — hires he needs to make soon.

The challenges are not small, but Zorich said he’s ready to tackle the job.

“I didn’t take this blindly,” Zorich said. “All I know is what I’ve read in the newspaper — and there were some crazy things written in the paper. I want to change that. I want people to know we’re open for business.

“It’s frustrating because when you read those (stories), there weren’t the positive ones. We have some amazing stories.”

Among his first to-do items will be hiring men’s and women’s basketball coaches. The women’s program, coached by Angela Jackson for 15 seasons, lost a Division I-record 59 games in a row over the last three seasons before ending the streak in February. The men’s program let go of Dildy after the Cougars went 3-29 in his eighth season.

Zorich said he has received calls about the men’s job from coaches with NBA experience.

Experiences on the opposite ends of college athletics’ financial spectrum will shape Zorich’s approach at Chicago State.

“I really think this is a hidden gem,” he said of Chicago State. “I’ve had the opportunity to be around some successful cultures. I’ve seen what success looks like and what you have to do. … It’s going to take time, and I’m willing to put effort into it.”

I’m hopeful he’ll do well. Seems like he’s coming in with plans to help increase revenue. Definitely can’t be worse than Dr. Hendricks!
