Is crappy football the only reason you want our AD out? Seems like all of our other sports are very competitive. Just curious!!!

Personally?

Crappy football is probably 3rd or 4th on my very long list of reasons for wanting Teis gone. My biggest beef with him is his relationship with alumni. 2nd would be the athletic department's inability to build school spirit among students (creating future donors.)

I believe the unrealized financial potential of TXST could open doors that even the best coaches couldnt.

Football sucks. Mens basketball sucks. Baseball is meh. Womens basketball is a little better.

He sucks at building donations, fan base, and any kind of interest in the program.

It would be harder to name something positive about him.

No scandals or violations. That is all.

He is in way over his head. I think he would be successful at a D3 type school.

Yea, definitely not the only reason. Looks like you're new, so I recommend doing a search for Larry Teis and read through all of the threads you come across.

Overall records since he's been here, handling of head coaching hiring and firing, attitude, resentment towards fans, presentation, visibility, accessibility, communication, lack of vision, lack of effort, missed opportunities that have set us further behind our peers every step of the way... All are on my list of reasons why he needs to go.

He was hired as an FCS Athletic Director at a time when our university had a budget of around 4 million and only had like 25K students. No one cared about athletics at that time and his only expectation was to get compliant with NCAA and improve the grades of student athletes.

We have simply outgrown his capabilities. Which actually happened a long time ago, but Trauth hasn't cared to take notice of athletics until recently.

Football is atrocious and not competitive.

Men's Basketball is bad and not competitive, though there are very inconsistent signs of life. Still, its performance under Larry has been summarily awful.

Volleyball & softball are pretty decent. T&F has been okay. Women's Basketball has shown some signs of life.

Everything else is very, very mediocre and not what I would classify as competitive.


But the real reason is everything else... terrible with donor relations, terrible with alumni relations, terrible public relations, terrible student relations... that's the stuff that dooms him. RiverBobcat has a good list that goes beyond this that I agree with.
