New EMU AD Wetherbee on Search Process, Transition

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

Today, we head to Eastern Michigan, where new AD Scott Wetherbee shares insights on how the search in Ypsilanti wrapped up – he was in church when he received the news. Wetherbee also touches on how he’ll keep in touch with the Eagles senior team during his transition period, what his initial to-do list looks like, and what he learned from Mississippi State AD John Cohen on how to effectively navigate the early days of being an AD. He also shares his go-to list of peers around the nation whom he counts on for advice.
