Looks like Rutgers is doing some job outsourcing to the Big Ten Network.
Two people familiar with the situation, who were not authorized to speak officially on Rutgers’ behalf, said Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany is expected to play a role in this search, which is why a preliminary list includes two deputy athletic directors from that conference: Sean Frazier of Wisconsin and Greg Ianni of Michigan State.
Rutgers will join the Big Ten for all sports in 2014, and will reap a financial windfall in future years from membership in the conference.
The only thing I can’t figure out there is why the school is being allowed to go through the motions of hiring an AD. Eliminate the middleman and let Delany put one of his assistants in charge of Rutgers athletics. Gotta protect that investment, after all.
