Stadium insiders Brett McMurphy and Jeff Goodman graded and ranked the football and men's basketball hirings of the current 130 FBS athletic directors. The grades were based on the success of the coaches hired, difficulty of opponents in their respective conferences, bowl appearances, NCAA Tournament trips, conference titles and national championships won. The grades did not take into consideration any fundraising or building of facilities by the athletic directors.
Whit was given an A-. Nothing surprising or earth shattering, but Whit knows how to hire.
