Georgia Tech AD on Miami's radar

It's been over a week since former Miami athletic director Kirby Hocutt abrupbtly left the school to take the same position at Texas Tech -- on a related note, has anyone ever decided to move from Miami to Lubbock of their own volition before? -- and Miami is busy searching for a replacement. Florida Atlantic's Craig Angelos has been mentioned as a possibility in Coral Gables, but according to a blurb in the Miami Herald over the weekend, a new candidate has emerged.
UM is fast-tracking its athletic director search, and Georgia Tech athletic director Dan Radakovich, who began his career at UM, is very high on a list of about a dozen candidates. UCF’s Keith Tribble and FAU’s Craig Angelos are among others on the list. But FIU’s Pete Garcia will not be considered.
Radakovich does have ties to Miami, as he worked at the school from 1983 to 1985 as the school's athletics business manager. Radakovich has been the athletic director at Georgia Tech since 2006, and just recently signed a new five-year deal in June 2010.

Before taking the athletic director job at Georgia Tech, Radakovich spent two years (2000-01) as the AD at American University and then five seasons (2001-06) as the senior associate athletics director at LSU.

Georgia Tech AD on Miami's radar

Watsh,

You're a fool   Have you ever been to Coral Gables where the UM actually resides?   Stop watching reruns of Miami Vice and wake up.   Sure, Kirby went to TT for family and you have to respect that.   However, to suggest that Lubbock, TX is a more desire place to live is absurd.   Not too mention, Kirby will be watching Al Golden win a NT within the next 3 years.   TT is not going produce a NC in this life or the next.

Good job Watash, way to combat a stereotype with another. Just as you feel Lubbock isn't boring and mundane, a person's chance of getting shot in Miami is miniscule.

Hey Tom,

Have you ever been to Lubbock, TX?  I didn't think so.  I can assure you Kirby and his family will have a much lower chance of being shot and killed in Lubbock than Miami.  It's a pretty good place to raise a family.
