Remember that Alvarez basically informed the UW through the press that he was making Bielema his replacement and to hell with state requirements for announcement, search, etc. The Chancellor's response, and that of the Board of Regents, was basically "Oh, OK, thanks for letting us know." Yes, they moved fast on this case. Is this the first case? Is this the only case? Or is this just the most convenient case to make a public show of contrition in order to avoid real accountability?
I say fire 'em all and let the Devil sort it out.
Based on the case you just made, with respect to lack of meaningful oversight of the Athletic Department, the "fire 'em all" recommendation applies to the Chancellor and Regents for failure to exercise appropriate oversight, right? After all, that is the problem you identified.
When I said "all of 'em" I meant ALL of 'em. In fact, I say we go back and retroactively fire Martin, Wiley, and especially Shalala, too--she really got them started down this path back during her reign.
