Hocutt is Out!

As I predicted last year, Kirby Hocutt, the Athletic Director at OU, used his position as a stepping stone to get a better job outside of Appalachia. He wanted to improve the football and basketball teams at the university and student's expense to amplify his resume. Now, apparently he is seen as a viable option at a major university athletic department where their basketball and football teams are central - most likely the University of Miami.

With Hocutt on his way out the door, it is absolutely imperative that the Ohio University community, namely the student body, demand from President McDavis that Hocutt's successor will bring back Ohio track. This can be achieved through letters to the editors, letters to the OU administration, and most importantly resolutions from Student Senate and Graduate Student Senate.


Email President McDavis at
Email the Board of Trustees at
Email the President of Student Senate at
Email the Student Senate listserv at
Email the President of Graduate Student Senate at
Email the Graduate Student Senate listserv at
Email AD Kirby Hocutt to tell him that you are glad that he is leaving at
