I learned long ago: 
The first line item in your job expectations is train your replacement.
The second line item is learn your next job so you're ready when you're needed. 

If you haven't trained your replacement you'll never move up. 

That is really good advice.  Thank you. I'm currently self employed, but will try to remember this for the future.  I'm guessing nobody want's to promote someone if a void would be left with nobody to fill it.  Assuming most people try not to train their replacement in an effort to seem more needed.

Chaves: 

< thanks band, cheer team > 

Heard name pronounced many ways over his 51 years, but now, Chaves rhymes with Toews ... 
Thank yous: Kennedy, search committee, Carr Sports Associates and Bill Carr, EWU, Cheney/Spokane, Faison and his department, 

Humbled, honored, exciting opportunity, 
To Summit, rekindling rivalries. 

How do I make decisions? Is it good for student athlete, the department, university, State. 

Asks athletes to earn degree, be a leader in action, do their best in a short time. 

How can we lift everything up? Likes the One UND strategic plan. Listening tour to hear constituencies. Listen, then activate. 

Faculty, staff, athletics platform to grow UND

Community: looking forward to knowing and working with

Alums: make you proud. 

Actually admitted and held up alumni fundraising arm sticker! Wha-the ... ;)

Choked up talking about family. Ten years at EWU, expects that here.

Questions for Chaves came slow (Kennedy joked not that easy on him). 

First question on his background and family. Not about him but university and student-athlete. 

Born in New England, Red Sox, Celtics, and WHALERS fan. < play Brass Bonanza here > 

This is a big deal for many and he understands that. 

Kennedy, Chaves going to Fargo for BB game and visit with NDSU president and AD. 

Was at Quinnipiac, UMass, Northeastern. Mainly spent time with junior game recently (Spokane Chiefs). 

(compliments REA facility) 

Getting other sports to another level. UND not a teenager in DI yet. 

Kennedy acknowledges Danielle Irle going on. 

Kennedy give Chaves a green hockey jersey (with 16?)

If you haven't trained your replacement, and learned enough for the next job, you'll never move up. 

Again.... you are the MAN.... so, so true

1903 to 2018 --> 115 years covered by 15 people. That's 7.67 years average. Seems about right.

I didn't notice until today that Irle is officially on the way out, opening up the Deputy AD spot.  Hopefully MM is interested and gets the job.  

Dude, you are so last week. ;):D

Faison had the longest tenure since Wanless (9 1/2 years).

And the worst tenure since Bunning

Worst? Dealing with a nickname, conference, and money issues wasn't a picnic and anyone put in that position would be raked over the coals unless they would have kept the Sioux name, stayed in the Big Sky, and cut education in favor of keeping women's hockey, swimming and baseball. I think for Faison's full plate he did an admirable job.

Then tell the SS world why it was the worst and how he could have made it better.

Smile more and chat it up. That's all that matters to some people.
