Glass cuts staff in Indiana University athletics department

Fred Glass so far is no fiscal liberal in his job as Indiana University athletics director.

Earlier this month, Glass axed another associate athletic director position. He has now cut one third of the senior staff since he became athletics director in January.
 
“We will do more with less,” said Glass, a long-time Democrat political operative before taking the post at IU. “A leaner senior staff frees up resources to more directly impact our student-athletes.”

Under Glass, there are now three senior associate athletic directors, two associate athletic directors and a deputy director (which is the No. 2 position in the department).

Glass has made many of the cuts by not filling vacated positions and making his current administrators take on more responsibilities.

Glass has Associate Athletic Director for Budget and Finance Kevin Clark, a seven year department veteran, handling the duties of senior associate athletic director for internal operations, which had been held by Tim Fitzpatrick before he was named AD at Texas A&M at Corpus Christi. As part of his new job, Clark will oversee equipment operations and the golf course and the significant financial management issues associated with these areas. He also will become the sports administrator for women's basketball. Clark's previous position has been eliminated.

Glass promoted Senior Associate Athletic Director Scott Dolson to deputy director of athletics in recognition of his previously expanded responsibilities and emerging role as “second in command.” Dolson has been with IU athletics for eighteen years. Sixteen-year department veteran Mary Ann Rohleder has been promoted to senior associate athletic director in recognition of her role as the senior woman administrator and her responsibility for compliance, Glass's oft-stated number one department priority.

Glass will personally oversee the football program as its “sport administrator,” a role previously filled by Fitzpatrick. Associate Athletic Director Grace Calhoun will add sports administration to her responsibilities, now overseeing the wrestling program.

  2. We are a nation of speed. All of our younger lives are filled with deadlines, quotas and bottom lines. We start to ease out of the pressured rat-race when we finally see "retirement." The most enjoyable travel on the planet is passenger rail service. Indy to Chicago does not beat Megabus or Southwest Airlines in speed. Passenger rail however has the best seating, mammoth legroon, seat backs that recline to more than 45 degrees and employers that really want you to return as a customer. Indiana municipalities need to maintain subsidies to support this transportation mode. Losing it is loss for all of us.
