A St. John's grad who interned with the Knicks, then worked at Loyola Marymount.  Hopefully the new blood will help improve things.

They probably leave when they realize there is no sports marketing.

Not really.  However, I am sure when he departs it will be voluntarily.

No question.  Fordham athletic administrators usually get a life time appointment.  I do wish him the best.  He has his work cut out for him.

first and foremost I wish Joel all of the best.

he has his work cut out for him, however, I also believe this department has been so underutilized by Uncle Julio for over 20 years and was not impressed with the last guy, that the growth potential is limitless.  Essentially one could look like a hero just by doing the basics.


a few quick notes:
I will say I am surprised that he is named as an Associate AD and not and Assistant AD.  He was a Director of Marketing working under an Assistant AD of Media Marketing etc.  So this is an enormous promotion in title and in the industry is really not an appropriate move based on what is common in college athletic administration. 
- Why not offer his some incentive and hire him as an Asst. AD and tell him, if attendance improves,  and other milestones are met, I will bump up your title to Assoc AD?
- Curious to know how the position was advertised.  If it was as an Associate AD, I guarantee you would have been able to get someone at a how higher level/ more proven track record.

CONCERNS
he is coming from a school without football.
looks like he only worked for one school.
he had an asst at his former gig, not sure if he gets one at FU
checked out the home attendance for men's hoops and it was none too impressive, especially for a school that doe snot have football.

Again, I truly do wish him the best but I wish they would have hired a #2 or even #3 guy form a Power 5 school, as the marketing, promotions, licensing, etc are done at such a higher level that if the candidate could even implement 1/3 of what they do at the bigger schools, it would be a monumental improvement for the athletic department.

GO RAMS!
