Take that 153,000 and ride cryptocurrency.....and bring back Ty Linder!

Ugh.... and Jeff Kurtz, the best PA announcer in college sports

Didn't realize Jeff Kurtz was cut as well... very sad!

RE: Welcome home Randale Richmond
When you stay at a place for a long time the salary gets out of whack and you become vulnerable to such things. I’m sure they had many cheaper options. Besides Jeff was too professional for today’s PA announcers. You need to scream a lot more today.

Agree, Burden. "Professionalism" seems so to no longer be a valued trait, unfortunately.

Wait. Seriously? How do you cut the PA announcer? So who's calling the games?

Wait- did Joel have any kids still enrolled at KSU who needed an "internship" arranged on his way out as trainee PA announcer... J Kurtz is the best!

They cut Kurtz who was probably making $100 a game and kept paying Nielsen half a million to sit on his ass and do nothing all year.

But yeah, Flashes Take Care of Flashes!

Greg Glaus is back as the Senior Deputy Athletics Director. He comes from Texas Tech. Lot of positive reaction from former players and coaches including this tweet from Todd Starkey:

What is happening!!! Jordan and Pippen coming to Kent State...look out MAC Eyes #LetsGoFlashes

I know Randale Richmond started a few weeks ago, but just out of curiosity, isn't Joel Nielsen still there until like June 30th. Are they like in a transition period of working together?

I'm going to take a flyer here that Joel is getting paid until June 30th and probably not seen on campus.

Sounds accurate. No sight of Joel Nielsen on the directory page
