More on Gottfredson in RG

6/16/2012: Diane Dietz of the RG on Gottfredson: Lots of info and many quotes, sounds like a solid guy.

He starts Aug 1, which means Berdahl gets to approve the July round of contracts for the Johnson Hall crew. It will be interesting to see how many “special assistant” jobs the insiders end up with. There’s a list from Feb here. Bean/Moseley deal here. Early May update here. Late May Frohnmayer update here. Berdahl’s own special UC deal here.

    So the RG says Berdahl recruited Gottfredson for the position — exactly why the faculty hired him to do, no?

    “Gottfredson didn’t initially apply for the University of Oregon job. Interim UO President Bob Berdahl, who worked with Gottfredson in California, talked “a lot” to him about the position.”

    I supported Berdahl because Bean was clearly unacceptable. I hoped Berdahl would

    1) help recruit good new president
    2) fend off Pernsteiner, calm donors, build state support for independent board
    3) clean up JH, strengthen shared governance, blunt support for union

    1 and 1/3 out of 3 ain’t bad?
