I don't think I'd be tweeting about my new job before my new employer announced it.

Good luck to him. Seems like he did good for the WCC. Who's up next?

I'd announce I'm stepping down before my new gig splashes the new hire.

Nope. You announce you're quitting. Something last minute changes on the new gig. You're unemployed.

There is a diference between signing an employment contract and making the announcement.

Common courtesy says you thank your old gig and wish them well

This is kind of like Kim Kardashian marrying Khris Humpreys, them splitting up, her having a baby and finding out its Kanye West's

Tacky tacky.

Did you really just compare Zaninovich to Kim Kardashian?  Evil or Very Mad

IMO, Zaninovich did a very good job of lifting the profile of the conference... there are always growing pains (i.e. this year's hoops schedule), but I think he did exactly what he needed to do.  The WCC's television contracts are pretty darn good.

The next hire will be interesting...  more of the same, or a change in direction?

Kim K. would lift the, err, profile of the conference. Geezer's choice:

I thought we outlawed the hidden ball trick. And I'm amazed that was posted by someone other than Double D. Speaking of...never mind.

Just saw this post from Jon Wilner, made a few days ago:

College Hotline wrote:Action: West Coast Conference begins search for new commissioner to replace Zaninovoich.
Reaction I: The league is on sound footing, having expanded to 10 schools, re-formatted the basketball tournaments and struck a long-term deal with ESPN just three years ago. The next commish won’t have any fires raging when he/she takes over this summer.
Reaction II: Zaninovich is scheduled to step aside July 1, so I wouldn’t expect a lengthy search – three months, tops. (That doesn’t qualify as lengthy, as these things go.) Two possible candidates come immediately to mind: current COO Lynn Holzman, who joined the conference 18 months ago after many years at the NCAA; and Portland athletic director Scott Leykam, who graduated from Saint Mary’s, worked as a professor at SMC and served as Zaninovich’s top lieutenant for four years before moving to The Bluff in 2012.
Reaction III: Zaninovich was an outside hire in ’08, charged with modernizing the league and finding new sources of cash. But the league has evolved and, at this point, needs a commissioner who understands its culture and the needs of its campuses.

I gotta admit, when I read that JZ was moving on, UP's Scott Leykam came to mind as a excellent and likely replacement.

DD might be on to something...  I have to think Leykam would be a popular candidate, based on his previous position with the conference.

Yea, and as I posted in another thread about Marquette, I also believe former UP AD Larry Williams is a strong candidate.

I don't know the composition of the search committee, but it would NOT surprise me if Fr. Bill were a BIG player in the search and decision.....

From a selfish standpoint, I really hope Scott stays at UP.....he's given a great boost to the UP Athletic Department.

The WCC  has a new commissioner.....it's Lynn Holzman.

Holzman is the third full-time WCC Commissioner in conference's 62-year history.

Hmm, I just read the article that accompanied the announcement of Commissioner Holzman's selection.

The article states that.
Over the past year......she was charged with overseeing the conference's day-to-day affairs.....
Should we assume she was the one who gave the final OK for last season's basketball schedule?  If so, that does NOT bode well for her treatment of the Pilots.   Evil or Very Mad

I guess we should give her the benefit of the doubt and give her a clean slate, but I'll be keeping an eye on the decisions coming from the WCC.....

The article mentioned a unanimous vote (which is not surprising in this type of situation), but I can't imagine UP, GU and USD would have let it get that far without assurances that it would not be repeated if she had anything to do with it.

So... what does the Holzman era hold for the conference? Further expansion? Her leadership could be critical as the BCS conferences begin discussions to change the face of NCAA Div. I...
