Summary of Ideal Candidate

Desired Profile of the next ECU AD:

•“a visionary, transformative, inclusive, decisive leader.”
•“fiscal responsibility will be extremely important,”
•“We need someone who can bond with the season ticket holder..treat every Pirate the same”.
•“I think we need a coach’s coach, somebody who supports our coaches but allows them to do their jobs without hovering on top of them so they can be effective,”
•“Someone who is willing to make tough decisions and then be transparent with the decisions they make, whether the public necessarily agrees with it or not,”
•“…the next AD needs to be able to understand and communicate with everyone under athletics umbrella, not just high-ranking staff….no matter what type of conversation,”
•Academics high on the list as well as an ability to be proactive in dealing with the ever-changing landscape of college sports, particularly football.
•The person should possess either direct ties to ECU or have a grasp on the uniqueness of eastern North Carolina.
•“come from an institution where football is the driving force, and that they understand that how those 12 Saturdays (game days) go a year drives a whole community and understand what that really means, how that funds the rest of our athletic budget and, quite honestly, how it drives fund-raising across the entire university platform”
