    Hey hey, way to go Sandy Barbour, you deserve it!

    Let’s see:

    * Kept Tedford around
    * Got the SAHPC off the ground despite tree sitter
    * Hired Monty.

    Pretty freakin’ awesome! Go Bears!

    Sandy SOOOO deserves this. If anyone can point to a misstep while she’s been at Cal, I’d love to see it. We’re lucky as hell to have her.

  • Pete Carroll

    And unlike Mike Garrett, she doesn’t have to deal with those pesky “lack of institutional control” issues.

    Milo,
    Don’t forget:
    *Kept J. Boyles around!

    and Pete,
    LOL.Part of an AD’s job is to evaluate staff that he/she brings in to ensure that they resonate with the AD’s vision
