Young Athletics Leadership

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

If you saw today on the official site, another new face has joined Ole Miss' athletics administration with the announcement of Derek Cowherd as the Senior Associate AD for Academic Support.

Derek continues a youth movement in the senior leadership of Rebel Athletics. Of course, the most notable is Athletics Director Ross Bjork, who, at 39, is the youngest AD among BCS schools. Below are the rest of us 30-somethings that have joined the administration in recent years -- a list that would have been even longer if not for Buffalo plucking our 32-year-old Foundation director Danny White to be their next AD on Tuesday. (congrats Danny!)

    Strange things happen to Ole Miss football teams in games played on Halloween. I don't know if I can bear to watch this one or not.

    It's great to be a Rebel fan. Coach Freeze
    Has brought back the excitement
    Competitiveness we all so desire. The
    fan base and even our doubters are
    Paying attention. Even the whole country
    Sport tLk shows ect. Are taking notice.
    After we upset Alabama this weekend
    38-27 we will bolt to a top 12 or better
    Ranking. Go Rebels

    I am not and never have been an Ole Miss fan. I am however a Coach Freeze fan. I like what he represents in today's world of big time sports and what he stands for in leading young men of today into a more responsible role. He is everything that Ole Miss has never had. I am on his band wagon winning or losing.
