Mind Games with Guerin Emig: Tulsa athletic director Rick Dickson goes in depth on the hiring of Kevin Wilson, and on the corporate side of college sports he finds both challenging and distasteful.
Tulsa athletic director Rick Dickson joins me for this episode of Mind Games on the Sellout Crowd network. Dickson hired Kevin Wilson as TU football coach last December, a risk given the controversial 2016 end of Wilson’s tenure at Indiana. Dickson is candid on that hiring process and the expectations for the second-time head coach at TU.
Dickson also opens up about the challenges of helming the athletics department at a small, private school at a time it’s easy to get left behind both competitively and financially. He compares his two tours of duty at TU, having been Golden Hurricane AD from 1990-94, reflects on a you-can’t-be-serious Key West encounter with Mike “Miguel” Leach, and admits he screwed up by opting out of Drew Pearson’s drills rotation as a 1970s TU defensive back… right into Steve Largent’s.
