CARNESALE RESIGNING AS CHANCELLOR JUNE 2006
University of California President Robert Dynes will look for the next UCLA chancellor. Let's hope that the "search" is better than the search for the football coach.
Even though athletic fundraising has been terrible, Carnesale was good at fundraising for shiny new Engineering buildings. In 2003, UCLA raised $7.7 million for athletics, compared to OU and Cal, each of which raised about $17 million.
Less than $8 million for football, but almost $3 billion (over a number of years) for new buildings for research.
The new chancellor must make athletics a priority. I will not give one penny for another new building for South Campus geeks. Not one penny. If they can raise $3 billion, they can afford a new coach, and to upgrade Pauley, and other facilities.
What a joke.
UPDATE: Can't believe I missed this laugher:
