Dan Guerrero Joins Steve Lavin As Winner of Meaningless Post-Season Awards

Andrew Fielding-USA TODAY Sports

The fact that UCLA AD Dan Guerrero has been named one of NACDA's ADs of the Year again proves how meaningless this award is.

In a piece of news that many will find hard to stomach, much less believe, UCLA AD Dan "Chianti" Guerrero was named one of NACDA's ADs of the Year.

In news that is guaranteed to make your lunch come back up, this is the third time Chianti has won this same award.

Apparently, NACDA doesn't really know what goes in to making a good Athletic Director. This is the same organization that actually elected Guerrero President for the 2011-2012 Year.

The selection committee was made up of 29 people who are affiliated with either an Athletic Department or a Conference.

The fact that Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott who seems to be able to sway conference members to do anything he wants couldn't dissuade Guerrero's selection should tell you a lot.

Or, maybe he encouraged the committee to select him in the hope that someone will want to hire him for a "better" position, ridding himself of Chianti once and for all.

Regardless of how this happened, it is painfully obvious that this award is absolutely meaningless as I can count on one hand the number of programs at UCLA that are moving in the right direction (football, women's soccer, gymnastics and maybe softball). After all, don't forget Steve Lavin was also once voted as Pac-10 Coach of the Year.

Fire Dan Guerrero. Now.

GO BRUINS!
