Published September 27, 2012
WHO'S GOT NEXT? In Nebraska, Brian Rosenthal reports Perlman is “using a search consultant, Jed Hughes of Korn/Ferry International” to find a new AD. Perlman said he expects to be able to attract “the very best” candidates. Hughes "helped hire" Michigan AD Dave Brandon and Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby. Perlman has invited “12 to 15 individuals to serve as his advisers in the search, and said Osborne will play an important advising role, as well.” Those regarded as “internal candidates” include Associate AD/Development Paul Meyers and Associate AD and Diversity & Leadership Initiatives Dir Jamie Williams (LINCOLN JOURNAL STAR, 9/27). CBSSPORTS.com’s Dennis Dodd wrote “expect these names to come up” as candidates: Meyers, Nebraska Exec Associate AD Marc Boehm, Arizona AD Greg Byrne and Ole Miss AD Ross Bjork (CBSSPORTS.com, 9/26). In Omaha, Lee Barfknecht provides a list of “established or rising ADs from major conferences who might get a look if interested” (OMAHA WORLD-HERALD, 9/27).
