and Tanner is the new AD. BYE BYE Eric!
Not me, look at what Hyman has done since at USC. Best AD we have ever had.
So you'd like to lose a really great AD and the best baseball coach in American in one move? Seems like a solid plan.
I hope he doesn't leave, but if he does Tanner should get the chance to turn the job down.
+1. Not much thought put into this one by the OP. Here comes the DV's!
"I used to walk up a hill to and from school in my days", says every Clemson student ever.
I hope he stays for a few more years. I know that Tanner wants to be an AD. I would hope he has earned the right to be the next AD. We also have the best assistant coach in the country on our baseball staff in Chad Holbrook.
Losing both Tanner and Hyman is a scary thought. I would not want to lose Holbrook, either, however.
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.
That makes no sense.
I don't want to lose Hyman, but it wouldn't be the end of the world.
But why the hell would you want to lose the best coach we've ever had? He would be wasted as an administrator.
Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to type on TBS and remove all doubt.
Lulz, welcome to the Hall of Shame
What makes all of you think Tanner would be a good AD? He might be and I certainly don't oppose such a move, but being a baseball coach and being a good administrator overseeing a huge budget and multiple employees are different jobs. Many a football coach did not turn out to be a good AD.
Evidently bc he was assistant AD at NC State 20 years ago?
OP obviously looking for dvs
damn.......if only the straw man had a brain.
Hyman is a very good AD...but why does his name come up for every job? He must feel under paid. Not saying he floats his name but UNC/Tenn/AM...I'm seeing a pattern.
For his name to come out this often, this publicly he sure isn't letting people know he's happy in Columbia and satisfied right now.
It's a good sign IMO when our coaches are mentioned for other jobs. Dawn was mentioned a couple of times for a few different jobs and she turned it down. Makes us look good. Hyman turned down his Alma Mater. Makes us look good. Spurrier turned down Miami and Alabama. Made us look good.
ATM is a little different because of Hyman's roots in Texas, but if he turns them down, then it makes SC look that much better.
Thats one way to look at it i guess. Or he is really effing good at his job, thus sparking interest from other major universities.
I think it is because he is good at what he does. He may not have hired Tanner but he gave the team and Tanner the facilities they needed to succeed and they succeeded. Same with SOS and the football team. Hyman has had a big hand in our programs turning the corner from middle of the road and some doormat programs to competitive SEC teams. His two hires, Dawn Staley and Frank Martin, will hopefully pan out for the long run and show Hyman's ability to be a successful AD at the highest level. I think this is the main reason other schools are looking at him for AD not that he is unhappy with his job and floating his name out there.

That's because they were doing 2 jobs and as AD favoring football to the detriment of the other sports which did not make for a "family" atmosphere in the AD office.
Being the baseball coach pretty much does the same thing as the AD only on a smaller scale. If you can manage people and a budget efficiently, I don't think it really matters how many people or what the size of the budget is.
Also, many current AD's were once coaches themselves.

I'll beat this horse dead. One of the worst, least thought out posts of all time. We lose a high quality AD and the best baseball coach in America, and we replace them both with people who are inexperienced in the new job. Rest assured Tanner's first move as AD would be to name Holbrook his successor.
Aside from that, my suspicion is that it would likely be a paycut for Ray.
This may be the dumbest post of 2012. Incredibly bad
I don't agree with you (of course). I know that Hyman did not hire Spurrier, but did Hyman hire Tanner? Who hired Dave Odom? Susan Walvius? I honestly dont remember.
