The Legacy of Joel Maturi

| No Comments

Since Joel Maturi announced the end of his tenure as the athletic director at the University of Minnesota's intercollegiate athletic program, his achievements and shortcomings over the past ten years have been recognized.
Some of his most notable accomplishments include the new TCF Bank football stadium and the merging of both the men's and women's athletic programs according to MPR News.
And though Maturi brought gopher football back to campus, the lack of success on the new field is just one of the many difficulties he faced during his stretch as athletic director. The men's basketball program has also struggled to win conference games with acclaimed head coach Tubby Smith.
Maturi plans to stay with the University next year as a faculty member in helping with the transition. University president Eric Kaler announced an advisory and search committee that will help look for a new athletic director and plan to have the position filled by the beginning of May, CBS Minnesota reported.
