Jamie Arrington TTT Talk Discussing Jon Gilbert on ECU Sports Radio

He was a special guest to discuss the background of Jon Gilbert last week. Jamie said he hasn't heard anything about the rumors in Hattiesburg but thats not surprising since this is how Jon has been since he has been at USM, no communication, keeps things close to his chest. USM has experienced four AD's since 2011 and a total of seven AD's all time at Southern Miss. He says fan feelings at USM about Dilbert are mixed. He is more of a behind the scenes AD with highlights including the volleyball facility, painting, sweeping, power washing and the sound system. Per the ECU Sports host, they got a quote from 247Sports that Dilbert is on record stating that Dave Hart reached out to him about the AD job, he didn't reach out to Hart regarding ECU. Gilbert apparently played football in North Carolina in college and has ties to the state. ECU's top football target is the James Madison coach who is also a Lenoire Rhyne graduate so they believe Jon is a favorite for this reason.

I have been following the ECU Banter Board for years and outside of the long shot of getting the JMU coach and staff they seem to like Butch Jones with Gilbert as the next play for their program. They are frustrated with the fact that other schools are firing and hiring the best available and know its inevitable that Coach Mo is gone after the NC State game this weekend. That said, one would guess they already have a plan in place with Butch Jones or the JMU coach but since both are still navigating college playoffs they will wait until they can officially make their announcements.

All this smoke sounds like Gilbert is done at USM.

Tuesday would be even better . Southern Miss must look " outside the box " now for an athletic director .  This must be a " boom or bust " hire . Nothing to lose as the last two [ at least ] have been total busts .

As long as the new AD doesn’t have a name that rhymes with Seth Cowers. That would be the worst move we could make......outside of G filling out an application.

This is all you need to know about her.......

"Varnell is no stranger to discrimination lawsuits. In 2008, a Forrest county jury awarded three former USM soccer coaches 1.2 million dollars. The coaches claimed they were fired or removed from their positions in 2000 for reporting alleged sexual advances toward one coach by Varnell. In 2010, Judge Bob Helfrich overruled two of the jury awards. However, all three are on appeal in various stages at the state Supreme Court."

She clearly has a documented history of using her gender and race for her bank account. Plenty of active D1 AD's out there that have the necessary experience to get us going the right direction. We need someone that has not spent the last year + learning how to not be an AD under Gilbert.

Lamont needs to make one call......

Totally agree with you NG about McClain... 100%. The big question is, why in the hell would he ever come back? Troy is moving in a good direction, it's probably a better job than USM right now, and I would think he could move up to a bigger school from there.

His family is from Mississippi. A bump in salary and return home might be enough motivation for him. Worth exploring.

Will he have to complete diversity training to be considered?

Names of interest last time, then we paid someone else to tell us who to hire.

I am good with the UGA guy......we might not get Jason Aldean to play The Rock but inside sources tell me he is really close with the ladies of Little Big Town......

"Brooks’ responsibilities at UGA included overseeing the departments of facility support, graphics and design, turf management and also serving as the sport facilitator for football. He was in charge of scheduling future games as well as overseeing bowl game operations. In addition, his responsibilities included assisting with the development and management of facilities, new construction projects for the athletic association, and planning the 2013 Jason Aldean Concert in Sanford Stadium."

Re: Jamie Arrington TTT Talk Discussing Jon Gilbert on ECU Sports Radio

Not sure another middle manager from an SEC school is what we need in this job. Those guys are mostly box-checkers. While they're here, the boxes to check are bowel games, compliance, and making sure they're on the next train out of town.

I'd rather see a little more creativity this time around. Someone like McClain (who almost certainly knows better), or, if I can just pick a name right out of thin air, Karl Benson.

SEC is a gravy train. That's where we got Gilbert. We need someone with a tougher background and a sense of urgency.
