Is it possible that Dan Radakovich might have had a… er, personal reason for keeping a lid on Tech’s latest scandal?
Scratch Georgia Tech’s Dan Radakovich from Tennessee’s list for a new athletic director.
Georgia Tech’s recent NCAA troubles and the NCAA’s assertion that Georgia Tech officials attempted to “manipulate the information surrounding potential violations” makes Radakovich untouchable for a school that appeared before the Committee on Infractions just last month for major violations in both football and men’s basketball.
Tennessee should find out sometime next month what sanctions it will face for violations that occurred on the watch of former athletic director Mike Hamilton, who stepped down in June.
In the meantime, Tennessee is left to pick up the pieces now that Radakovich is out.
What’s most troublesome for Tennessee supporters is that the university forked out six figures to the Parker Executive Search firm to help identify candidates, gather information … and conduct background checks.
If that’s the case, how does a guy like Radakovich emerge as the front-runner when his own shop is about to get hit with NCAA penalties?
Way to dodge that bullet, Vols.
