Unless this is just a negotiating ploy for his contract, this is not a good sign regarding athletics and in particular the football training/student center. Just my thinking.

I don't know. I could be way off, but it seems like The Coach and Dr. Kelly have done more to push the facilities than Chun. And I think Dr. Kelly would do a really good job in hiring an athletic director.

100% agree with ya again David. Even though Chun's strength was in finances at The OSU.

No naming rights?
Poor on the field performances.
Half funded complex in which they just went to the old well a got money from people have been donating for years.

I think you are reading too much into this…and really, it's more likely the opposite.  Bigger programs don't tend to interview candidates from smaller ones that are failing.  It's a good sign for the department that Chun is being recognized for the good work being done here.  It's better to have your people in demand than not wanted at all.  Hope he sticks around longer though.

He's not, and it's not a negotiation tactic.

Its a step up in his career. Can't blame anyone for doing that.

I think the Jury is still out if Pat leaves. I will say that the one thing I am MOST dissapointed in is that naming rights for the stadium still are not done.

I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$ and I'm out of bubble gum.

Assume you mean voluntarily, correct?

I'm alright with Chun leaving. Maybe it's just me, but he never seemed to have the same enthusiasm for the program that Kelly and CP do. Kind of hard to blame him, since he's the one who had to ride out the Pelini and Saunders debacles
