What did he do except facilities? He hired Monte and we don’t know yet how that is going to work out. He’s on his second lady BB coach and the jury is still out there? So what did he do except spend money?
About time. It was starting to grow a little old sitting in limbo while everyone in the world knows he is out the door. Ready to turn the page on that one. DRad was a top notch AD during his tenure b/c he is a Finance guy - you have to be that now or you are playing behind the 8 ball administratively. The days of having the former FB coach serve as AD are over. If Neff has the Personnel/People skills (which I think he will) to go with his Corp. Finance background, he will be a great asset.
His short-sighted and ill-timed plan to cut Clemson's Track and XC programs ultimately ended up costing the University millions of dollars, as part of the title 9 legal settlement necessitated the start of 2 new Women's sports and to insure equity. That doesn't even take into account the hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal feed paid out as well.
Exposed for the short sighted rather “unbright” person that he is. He was able to fly under the Dabo success era radar for a looong time until he truly “stepped in it” with his super boneheaded move to unnecessarily expose Clemson in such a negative light with the whole T&F debacle!
Frankly, the smartest move he is making is taking the $$$ right now from Miami. I’m just glad there is a school dumb enough to hire him away from us.
Just goes to show you how great America is! You don’t have to be very smart to make $1 million + per year. He done good for himself despite his shirt comings
