RICK BAY

Game 367 | January 18, 1989
One of the highest profile athletic directors in the country, Bay resigned his job at Ohio State to protest the hiring of football coach Earle Bruce. The Gopher job was open after the firing of Paul Giel, and Bay's hiring went a long way to quiet the controversy over the firing of a local hero. Bay stayed at Minnesota only three years, but he was credited with modernizing the department while renovating Williams Arena and negotiating to bring the 1992 Men's Final Four to Minnesota.
