DeFilippo on the Alabama AD Search

In conjunction with our partners at D1.ticker, Turnkey Search is pleased to present “1.Question”, a new audio feature in D1.ticker’s daily email newsletter. “1.Question” features brief interviews with high level collegiate athletic administrators.

Turnkey Search Managing Director Gene DeFilippo begins this 1.Q by reflecting on the recent hire of Greg Byrne as the new AD at Alabama. Further, DeFilippo notes the challenge of keeping an AD search as quiet and confidential as possible and to what extent he checks on what’s going on in the media during a search process.
