In addition to hiring a National Championship-caliber football coach (who he stole from Nick Saban at Alabama), he also has revamped the Men’s and Women’s basketball programs with nationally recognized and successful coaches that have taken their respective teams to the NCAA tournament in recent years………Jack Graham has also headlined the need for an on-campus stadium movement in Fort Collins, CO over the last 3 years, making it his #1 priority (other than having great Farrah Fawcett hair).
“I have elected to terminate Jack Graham’s employment as athletic director,” Frank said in a university release. “While I am grateful to Jack for the energy he’s brought to CSU in establishing a culture that expects excellence within Ram Athletics and his actions in hiring great coaches and staff, there have come to exist some substantial differences in our views.
“Based on our differences, I have chosen to exercise the termination for convenience clause within Jack’s contract to allow the university and the athletic department to move forward, building on the successes that Jack brought to our program. As a personnel issue, this will be the University’s only comment on this personnel action.”
Small town, tiny-brained, backwards-thinking University President just put CSU athletics on double-secret probation for being too forward-thinking.
“Fat, Drunk and Stupid are no way to go through life son…….” It looks to me like the small-town mafia has taken over and rubbed out the only guy who could lead their athletic program into the 21st century. Joe Pesci would be proud.
