This is a great hire- this is a power move as Shawn has an exceptional track record. SMU, UCLA, and OSU is an impressive athletic background- the last two stops in particular are massive places with gigantic budgets. Making a hire like this is pretty darn impressive- there's no AD in the America East that has these type of stops on their resume.

I gotta say, you don't get a guy with this type of background unless you're planning about being really aggressive about investing in the athletic department. This hire just reaffirms to me that Dr. Stanley is really interested in fortifying the athletic profile of the university. Heck, this move may set the backbones for a big conference move in 10-15 years.
