Browsing the college football subreddit, saw this: https://ucfknights.exposure.co/we-have-liftoff

Awesome alternate UCF uniforms, and UCF fans praising their new AD. Cant wait for Pete to be gone and get a breath of fresh air.

I think Pete's plan is to wait for Butch to do really well and then announce he is no longer stepping down in a couple of years.

Not buying it. So far I've only heard this from people that are still upset about his handling of Cristobal.

As much as it depresses me to think of it... I sort of buy into Roman's theory.

That's pretty much the scenario which would have to play out. Either that or Butch demands PG stays if he's going to stay. Which, in all honesty, I could live with if it means keeping BD long-term.

So no evidence or even first hand knowledge of the situation? Just hunches? Got it.

Who could have foreseen Garcia not leaving? I think the only thing needed was common sense. <\end sarcasm>

That guy is such trash. Soccer team has been waiting over 10 years for a new stadium, attendance sucks, donations are garbage and he gets more time because people didn’t see this for what it was. A stall tactic.

Looks like he isn't going anywhere. I do think some things are better, but I want to see more fundraising and better promotions to draw attendance. I know both those things get easier with winning but now we should start to see the needle moving in funds. Promos suck. There are local no-name gas stations with better marketing than the athletic department.

I won't argue with any of that. You're dead on.

But if Butch is saying he wants PG to stay... and he probably is telling Rosenberg that... then I don't see how you could let PG leave at this point.

Butch probably isn't even at FIU were it not for PG. And if he gets football where we all hope it goes... then it's quite possible attendance and donations fixes itself. At least, for football.

Is there an AD hire we could make which would give us a better chance? Especially if it also leads to Butch stepping down and hiring another coach?

I doubt it.
