SEE THE MAN MULCAHY: The appointment of ROBERT MULCAHY to AD at Rutgers Univ. "represented a victory" for NJ Gov. CHRISTINE TODD WHITMAN, who wanted Mulcahy for the post and overcame "resistance" from Univ. President DR. FRANCIS LAWRENCE, according to Frank Litsky of the N.Y. TIMES. Mulcahy agreed to a three-year contract paying $185,000 a year. His NJSEA job pays $182,875.
