Stanford’s Dawkins Receives 2-Year Extension

STANFORD (CBS / AP) — Stanford men’s basketball coach Johnny Dawkins has signed a two-year contract extension that takes him through the 2015-16 season with the Cardinal.

Athletic director Bob Bowlsby made the announcement Wednesday about the new deal for Dawkins, who owns a 49-48 record in three seasons at Stanford, including last season’s 15-16 mark.

The 47-year-old Dawkins was a longtime Duke assistant under Mike Krzyzewski and a former All-America at the school where he had been on the coaching staff since the 1997-98 season. He played for a national championship and won it all as an assistant coach.

Last season marked his first with a roster of his own recruits after he took over in April 2009 following Trent Johnson’s departure for LSU.

    Until action is applied by the University of California (UC) Board of Regents to chancellors, like Birgeneau, UC shouldn’t come to the Governor or public for support for any tax increase.

    (The author has 35 years’ consulting experience, has taught at UC Berkeley (Cal) where he observed the culture & way senior management work)

    Cal. Chancellor Birgeneau ($500,000 salary) has forgotten that he is a public servant, steward of the public money, not overseer of his own fiefdom (these are not isolated examples): recruits (uses California tax $) out of state $50,000 tuition students that displace qualified Californians from public university education; spends $7,000,000 + for consultants to do his & many vice chancellors jobs (prominent East Coast university accomplishing same 0 cost); pays ex Michigan governor $300,000 for lectures; in procuring a $3,000,000 consulting firm he failed to receive proposals from other firms; Latino enrollment drops while out of state jumps 2010; tuition to Return on Investment drops below top 10; Birgeneau all employees meeting – only 50 attend; visits to Cal down 20%; NCAA places basketball program on probation, absence institutional control.

    It’s all shameful. There is no justification for such practices by a steward of the public trust. Absolutely none.

    Birgeneau’s practices will continue indefinitely. Governor Brown, UC Board of Regents Chair Lansing, President Yudof must do a better job of vigorously enforcing stringent oversight than has been done in the past over Chancellors like Birgeneau who use the campus as their fiefdom.
