SFU needs a new process on hiring candidates. They only last 2 or 3 years and the students hate them.

I think that there are a few aspects of the university that have made it hard the past few years to find a person who is a good fit. I'm not so sure that this was a good hire from the start, and as other people pointed out three years ago it seemed like a fallback job for him. Going from Depaul to Clemson, then to the NEC with SFU seemed strange.
However, the university does have many things going for it and there is no doubt in my mind that some qualified and enthusiastic people will apply for the job. It seems as if they wanted to make up for their previous hires by looking for big conference experience, but I'm not sure that was the best decision.
