The most interesting tidbit of the weekend came yesterday:

I don't really understand this -- you've got a really good interim and 26 other positions to fill, so I was more than happy to let this process take a while, especially since there are benefits to having an interim. Alas.

Wolken, meanwhile, has uncovered a new (and potentially serious candidate):

Frazier was hired in the fall of 2013 and was a chief fundraiser at Wisconsin before that. I have no idea what he has done at NIU since both the football and basketball coaches were hired before he took the main role, but he's apparently a hot name in the AD community.
