Its pretty much a done deal. Meeting with Sark will set guidelines and salary. Job description: GP becoming a special assistant, most likely to defense. Its a prefect role for Gary and one he'll accept immediately. If that happens then GP and Kelsey will eventually move to Austin selling the house on the hill. An awful lot of this decision will be made because Kelsey wants to move to Austin and GP wants the challenge. I wish Gary the absolute best in this NEW ADVENTURE. He will be 63 before long and new adventures don't come along at 63 very often regardless of position. Now comes the disclaimer but info is substantial!Really?
So a few years ago Ann Louden left TCU after years of being VBo’s assistant because he could not get approval for her role to move from part time to be a full time role from the board. She was his right arm and the best at what she did because of her relationships in FtW from the years of being married to Malcolm - and VBo has struggled to find anyone even close to replace her.
We have had several assistant deans and other professors leave because we don’t add roles for them to advance even though we have numerous programs without proper oversight in their areas - and VBo has tried to create positions to stop it but cant without approval - which he doesn’t get due to our already high faculty to student ratio requirements
Yet somehow you think we can just snap fingers and create a role in the Administration for a couple of million a year just so GP can hang around and not go coach somewhere else? The FRC would stage a walk out given how often they are told no to every salary or faculty position increase in the face of rising tuition
Where exactly do you think this GP role would sit within the University?
Amazing how little our football fans seem to understand about how the rest of the school operates
Just like with CDC - just because ADJD says it doesn’t mean it was reality - they are both good at selling what needs to be sold
