WRAL has an article up on the A.D. search, which hasn't gotten very far yet, although they have an idea about what they're looking for.
â¢ Ability to support and inspire programs that reach the highest levels of athletic performance
â¢ Committment to Dukeâs special tradition of athletic and academic excellence, and give leadership to this cause
â¢ Possession of superb managerial skills needed to oversee a large, complex organization
â¢ Ability to effectively communicate the vision and values of Duke athletics within the department, to outside audiences, and to other parts of the university.
This according to President Dick Brodhead.
There's a long way to go, but knowing what you're looking for is a good start.
