End of an Era – Morgan Burke Tenure Ends Today

Morgan Burke's tenure as athletic director ends as of the end of Wednesday, August 31. A loyal son of Purdue, Burke is being lauded as a model AD, a terrific leader and a wholesome man. We don't disagree that Morgan's heart was always in the right place, but how much of what he did was "impressive" and how much was basic maintenance?

Purdue probably listened to the groans of potentially hiring from inside the Athletic Department or from the good move there. They hired right in between - a safe-ish, uninspiring AD that wasn't as bad as some of the candidates and wasn't even close to many of the positive scenarios.
