Kane quoted on U's choice of Teague for AD

KaneMJ-2005.jpgProfessor Mary Jo Kane, director of the Tucker Center for Research on Girls & Women in Sport, professor of sport sociology in the School of Kinesiology and co-chair of the U's Athletic Director search, is quoted extensively on search finalist Norwood Teague in several sources including Washington Post, Associated Press, Fox Sports North, and TwinCities.com. In one quote, Kane states that Teaque, of Virginia Commonwealth University, "has a superlative track record of fundraising and attracting and retaining high quality coaches. He's committed to maintaining an academic standard of excellence that is a tradition of Gopher athletics. And he has the expertise, values and work ethic to ensure that athletics at the U of M will reach an even greater level of success."
