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.

D1.ticker Contributing Host Tai Brown stepped into the compliance world to speak with David Batson, Senior Associate Athletics Director of Athletic Compliance at Texas A&M. Batson shares his approach to saying “no” to head coaches and athletic directors without suppressing creativity.
