7/9/2011: It didn’t take long for the UO administration to decide that Melinda Grier would be the scapegoat for Frohnmayer’s failure to get a written contract for Mike Bellotti. And she was an excellent choice, in so many ways.
But now Ms Grier is gone and the search for someone to take the fall for the Willie Lyles deal seems to be well underway. Maybe this unfortunate $35,000 a year AD employee? I wonder if we’ll pay him $200,000 to spend next year teaching a few law classes? Adam Jude has the story, in the RG.
