Centenary AD announcement is strange
A story that would have attracted media attention from this newspaper and all three local television stations, had a news conference been held, instead was handled as if Schwab were announcing a new English professor. Not that there's anything wrong with English professors getting hired. But the athletic director controls the only area at the school that regularly draws attention.
Were it not for athletics, a lot of people in Shreveport-Bossier City wouldn't even know the Kings Highway school existed, let alone send their prodigy there.
The other surprising thing about the announcement is that Schwab didn't even bother to personally to call two long-time staff members, who had applied for the job, to inform them that they didn't get it. That's a strange way to handle business.
Tom Tallach, who is the new AD, will probably prove to be a good hire for the Centenary athletic department. He certainly has the education, the experience and desire to move all Centenary sports forward ... unless he gets held back by a president that lacks sports commitment.
