Chancellor Holden Thorp leaving UNC

Saw this article on the ESPN site. Think it is interesting and worth some discussions. Here is the link to the article.

Thorp's take is that the the president should step aside and let their athletic directors handle the job. Can you imagine the mess DG would get UCLA if he ran the entire university. Thorp believes athletics is the most important thing for schools with large large athletic budgets.

“Either we put the ADs back in charge and hold them accountable if things don't work.... or let's be honest and tell everyone when we select (presidents) to run institutions that run big-time sports that athletics is the most important part of their job.”
