Read “Winning At All Costs: A Case Study” provided on Blackboard. Based on that case study, write a 3-5 page paper that addresses the following:

  1. Do you agree with the decision the athletic director chose in handling the situation? Why or why not?
  2. What decision-making model do you think the athletic director utilized while determining how to handle the situation? Provide reasons for your selection.
  3. How would you have handled the situation if you were the athletic director? What would you have done different? What decision-making model would you utilize to come to that conclusion?
  4. The final paragraph addresses some interesting issues the athletic director may face as the result of his decision. Discuss how much of an impact you feel each issue will have on the AD’s ability to lead the athletic department in the future.
