That's a joke, right? It has to be a joke, because here's the punch line:
Michael Adams, the Georgia president said to be on the short list to replace Myles Brand as head of the NCAA, was instrumental in the hiring of Harrick as Georgia's basketball coach in 1999. That was after Harrick had been fired for being a scumbag at UCLA, and it was after Harrick had behaved questionably -- and later found to be scumbaggedly -- at Rhode Island.
No matter. Adams liked Harrick from their years together at Pepperdine in the 1980s, so he pushed for his hiring. Adams was such an astute judge of character that he waived the school's nepotism rule to let Harrick hire his son, a complete and total buffoon named Jim Harrick Jr., on his staff.
You know how that worked out for everyone involved.
And this guy, this Michael Adams person, is a frontrunner to replace Myles Brand?
Only if the guy who hired Dave Bliss doesn't want the job, I guess.
