Those who hire these "athletic" paper-pushers at the U should be fired, they'd be on welfare before they found a job in the real world. The only thing they're good at is burning other people's money.....just like politicians, only we can't vote them out.
The U is an out of control money burner. Constantly nagging the legislature for more money they "need", constantly over-paying athletic directors, coaches, giving them ridiculous contract extensions to keep them here, only to fire them & give them a windfall "buyout" within a year.
It's no wonder the average MN kid can't get a decent, fair-priced education at the U.
