TKM really comes off poorly after reading that. One part in particular: 

Quote

UNLV’s struggles are especially tough for Kunzer-Murphy to stomach because she knows she hired the coach who could have reinvigorated the Rebels. Now she has to watch him do it at the school that plucked him away instead.

When Kunzer-Murphy stumbled across Beard at a conference a few months after he left UNLV, she tapped him on the shoulder and unloaded on him.

“It was hard that first year,” she said. “It was raw. We got dumped.”

Talk about total and complete lack of professionalism. She never should've had the job.

She was a big part but not the only part.  Our State Board of Regents were complete dics.  The Board has since taken themselves out of the hiring process and now leave it to the university presidents.

Ancient article, and discussed back in March when it came out, but it is a good read.

Yeah, TKM was total amateur hour. Thankfully we are past that.

The way she handled the Cronin situation was more embarrassing, imo. 

Texting beat writers that she’s having dinner with Cronin, potential contract deets, looking at houses etc. 

Then let him fly out of here without a contract signed.

 

Total waste of time.
