BC AD list is shrinking

We don’t know who Boston College’s new athletic director will be–yet. But sources familiar with the early process say that BC has little interest in luring Rutger’s athletic director Tim Pernetti away from the Scarlet Knights.

Pernetti’s background as a young aggressive marketing executive, with a television background fit many of the profile lists that BC is looking for in finding a replacement for Gene DeFilippo, who will retire on Sept. 30th.

But BC officials-specifically VP Leo Sullivan–feels he has other people on his list who fill more of the items that BC wants in its next AD.

Sullivan still expects to have the job filled by Oct. 1.

    No amount of luring would EVER convince Pernetti to leave Rutgers for BC. After the first 10 articles mentioning Pernetti, I just let it slide… but to say this line, “But sources familiar with the early process say that BC has little interest in luring Rutger’s athletic director Tim Pernetti away from the Scarlet Knights.” is just spinning the truth.

    I understand that this is a BC blog with plenty of bias, but you also have a responsibility to be fair to both sides. You and I both know that if BC could realistically land Pernetti, they’d be over the moon with joy – because, everyone in the AD ranks knows that he’s a rockstar, and would be a home run hire for BC.

    But insinuating that BC was never really interested in him, is just silly. More than likely, Pernetti politely said “no thanks”. If you know Pernetti and his history, the guy bleeds scarlet, considers RU his dream job, and is most definitely, a true JERSEY GUY.

    I don’t like your TRUE JERSEY remark. There have been plenty of Jersey guys on BC’s roster, especially in the past 15 seasons (we had over 25 at one point in the early 2000’s, not to mention a couple of coaches and various support people) and plenty of them are back in NJ living and working. Choosing to play at BC has not made them any less of “true Jersey guy”. RU politically, socially and academically isn’t something that excites all NJ recruits no matter how much their fan base trys to sell, “you aren’t a real NJ guy if you don’t choose RU.” Best part about being an NJ recruit who chooses to go out of state to plays is that RU will always be there if they decide to transfer back. It always has been that way and always be that way.
