The announcement today that Carl Kirschner will serve as interim Athletic Director after Bob Mulcahy steps down in two days is being met with near universal praise from the Rutgers community and the media.
It's for very good reason. Dean Kirschner is among the most able and skilled administrators at Rutgers University. He "gets it", per se. Kirschner is one of several in a cadre of skilled administrators that envisions Rutgers excelling in all aspects of a well-rounded university experience.
The search for a new, permanent AD should begin soon. The process must be comprehensive without unnecessarily dragging on.
