Since Margie is the only female from your list, my money is on her. On an aside, I would welcome her. She was always a big fan of BC athletics (taking a special interest in the football team). That immediately puts her ahead of two out of our last three ADs.

One thing that has been mentioned over the years is about how little Leahy actually cares about athletics. And, how he views it mostly from an economic view (one in which is generally a drain on finances). This was discussed ad nauseam during the whole move to the ACC and why he took such an active role. It has been discussed of late as it relates to coaching moves (particularly regarding his disdain for paying coaches not to be here). To that end, coronavirus is creating very real financial challenges within the world of athletics (see article below). While I have repeatedly heard about Fr. Bill's desire to hire BC's first female AD, it is possible that the unprecedented issues of today may force him to look less towards social progress and more towards competency.

The Aaron McKie transition was really popular with basketball alumni, donors, etc, as well as appearing to be pretty successful on the court. Speaks more to the eventual Jerry transition than basketball. But it’s clear he knows hiring and fundraising so I would hope he can do a good job with basketball too.

Also worked really closely with Rhule to build up Temple football after Addazio left, so Hafley should be excited.
