            Looks like he used the ATU job to get a better deal at GSW. The Covid thing probably is why it took a month to happen... Just another head scratching moment in the last 18 months at ATU...

              Any names floating around anyone knows about? I would think this could be a Top 3 job in the GAC.

                Nothing yet. But who had heard about Leeder before? The AD position right now still belongs to Abby Davis.

                  Gotcha, she looks like she has done a decent job as an intern. Do you think they would offer her the job?

                    I do not. She wasn’t even a Top 3 Candidate this last go round.

                      Not a new AD again, but we have now hired a Director of Athletic Communications to replace Paul Smith. Daniel Gallegos comes to Tech after 2 years at New Mexico. He was previously at SAU and HSU. Any 'Riders or Reddies know him?

                        Dude, you guys got the best in the business. Daniel is awesome! He is an outstanding family man and a very dedicated worker. I was a student worker under him at one time. You will probably see his family at a good amount of the games. He will hit the ground running Day 1. Excited to see him back in Arkansas!

                          I remember he was so dedicated to his job that the one year sau softball travelled for regionals/super regionals, he went so we would hear a home town voice calling the action for us! Think that was the year we went to Augustana!
