Letter to the editor: Something fishy

To the editor:

I don’t know about the rest of Jayhawk Nation, but, speaking for myself, I have to say the circumstances surrounding the departure of KU basketball’s rock star strength coach, Andrea Hudy, don’t pass the smell test.

She’s going from being a celebrated staff member at a blue blood program to just another well-paid athletic department employee at the University of Texas? Hmm.

She announces her exit barely a week before the start of the school year and two weeks after KU football’s strength coach Murphy Grant split for Wake Forest? Hmm.

And then I read in the Journal-World that Grant’s and Hudy’s departures came on the heels of the athletic department switching to a new administrative model that had Hudy and others answering to something called Kansas Team Health, a joint venture that includes the KU athletic department, The University of Kansas Health System and LMH Health in Lawrence. Hmm.

The downside to this reorganization is now evident. When, if ever, will we see the upside? And what form will that take?

Because if there isn’t an upside, it sure looks like somebody went out of their way to fix something that wasn’t broken.

Dave Ranney,
