Michigan president Mark Schlissel has hired a search firm and organized a search committee to hire an athletic director who can manage the budget, raise funds, lead a staff of 350 and work with coaches and student-athletes to develop top national programs — all under the umbrella of promoting academics first. Schlissel hired Turnkey Search and appointed a search committee that includes softball coach Carol Hutchins and Dr. Stefan Humphries, a former Michigan football player now a medical director of a facility in Nevada. He said he has set no timetable to replace Hackett, who was hired Oct. 31, 2014, after Brandon resigned. And he said having a business background is not requisite for the job. But he did say having some connection with Michigan “does have advantages.” -Angelique S. Chengelis, The Detroit NewsRead More
