That’s per the NYTimes story on the release of the report into Rutgers athletics, from Schiano’s salary increases to the stadium expansion. Reports the Times: “There is ‘no question that the president’s failure to exercise fully his ultimate authority on these matters, to seek the counsel of the board in certain instances, and to test the basis of [athletic department] decisions exacerbated this situation,’ read the report, which also sharply criticized the athletic director, Robert E. Mulcahy III.”

What is clear is that McCormick turned a blind eye as the bumbling, Ahabesque Mulcahy plunged into ever more delusional and incompetent action — and left to pay the price are students who see their university crumbling for lack of funding.
Clean house by, first, firing Mulcahy and then dumping McCormick. There’s a start on reviving Rutgers.
