Subject: If Fr. McShane is to maintain a high level of credibility moving forward, he must make a change and hire a professional AD/VP that reports to him without a "filter"(Jeff Gray) for athletics to be successful. That "filter" was created due to the incompetence of the current AD, not for any other reason. There's no question that we can attract high quality candidates for this position, but only if the position reports directly to the President. If the reporting structure doesn't change, no good candidates will apply. This is an important decision for Fr. McShane - let's hope he's up to the task.
