2/27/13: The academic side is finally off the hook for the 50% we’d been covering out of tuition money.
We’ve written a fair amount on UO General Counsel Randy Geller charging the academic side half the cost of “The Cleaner” Mike Glazier’s work on the Chip Kelly / Willie Lyles recruiting infraction.
Here are the latest accounting statements. It takes 5 minutes to run these off – but it took a month to get them from Dave Hubin’s public records office. Note the date in the corner: 11-Feb-2013. Hubin sat on them for 15 days after they were ready. Full doc dump here.
And check the text in the lower left. The athletics department only paid half of the cost of Chip Kelly’s lawyer through November 2012. The academic side paid the other $75,000 or so. But for the December invoice, it looks like athletics paid it all.
Why the change? Because I raised a stink. Not as big a deal as the $555K a year in overhead payments I finally got Jamie Moffitt to admit they owed us, but every little bit helps. Next let’s go after the $1.83M in Jock Box subsidies and the second mortgage on Mac Court that Frohnmayer and Kilkenny stuck us with, for $467K a year. Only 26 more years of payments.
Of course UO “Faculty Athletics Representative” and athletic department shill Jim O’Fallon still refuses to share any information about the infractions settlement efforts with the UO Intercollegiate Athletics Committee. A violation of UO Senate rules, and our shared governance constitution and another example of the loss of institutional control by UO over its athletic department. Hubin wants $386.62 before he’ll show those docs:
