Exactly. That’s why I posted it. Odd, especially since she hasn’t been at work since March.
Several things. She hasn't been at work since April, after the contract extension, at least according to the other article. The extension was in April.

Part of it is for recruiting purposes, of course. Blair is 75. If you know the coach with the reputation is retiring, would you come anyway?

Also, RU is in a tough place; while it has been modest, RU has been generally successful of late after a really disappointing period (yes, there are folks disappointed now, but comparatively things have been better since RU upgraded their facilities). Vivian's name is still a "goodwill" generator, and it sends a terrible message if you were to fire a hall of famer or a coach who has returned to the NCAA's and 20 win seasons.

Of course the long time away is certainly an issue. It tends to make me wonder if she really was doing much day-to-day stuff in any case, or just providing high level direction. As I said in an earlier post, I kind of understand - she has had health issues, her daughter is way past her anticipated life expectancy based on her health issues, and again we are not in her shoes. But it will be interesting to see what transpires.

Although the mostly negative thread was deleted on the Rutgers board, several folks who know about such things posted that she probably has a year's worth of sick days accumulated in her lengthy career at Rutgers, based on University policies.

Quick question if anyone knows - Tekia Mack transferred from Rutgers to DePaul for her "extra" Covid season, but does not appear on the DePaul roster per the RU message board.

Any DePaul followers know what happened?

I asked the same question in another thread yesterday. Eerie timing. Haven't seen any responses yet.

I saw on twitter, from Raoul, that Tekia Mack had a career-ending injury. I haven't seen it reported elsewhere so I can't verify the validity, usually Raoul is credible though. But that is the current rumble about Mack's situation.
