Jim Delany Wants the Power to Fire Coaches
"The Big Ten is mulling a proposal that would give its commissioner,
already one of the most powerful men in college sports, the authority to
fire coaches himself, The Chronicle reports today.
The proposal, part of a plan being circulated among Big Ten leaders,
would give James E. Delany, who has overseen the league since 1989, and a
powerful committee of conference presidents the ability to penalize
individual members of an institution, should their actions significantly
harm the league’s reputation."
