Penn State just announced that Dave Joyner will remain AD through Rodney Erickson's term as president. http://live.psu.edu/story/63753
After Erickson is replaced, a national search will be conducted. Interested to hear from the people who claimed that Joyner would be gone this month?

Dominate The State
Wonder how this sits with BOB?
"DOMINATE the state" - James Franklin 1/11/14
It makes sense you want the new president to hire the AD...
Not sure, but really kind of expected they wouldn't hire a new one, because no AD is going to take a job not knowing who the president is going to be. Erickson is out June 2014, can't come soon enough.
I wish however they would have named someone internal like Batista while they searched for one - but i always thought that scenario seemed unlikely.
Joyner complained outwardly, and after all the hoopla earlier this month, I think that's the only reason they kept him on. I think it's defiant on both rod and Joyner to make this move, I think only reason it was done was to make the media outlets look uninformed. Terrible news.
This makes the most sense logically. No qualified AD wants to take the job without knowing who the President is going to be. Erickson and Joyner wanted to save face and probably didn't want the impression that they were being bullied by BOB and I'm sure BOB was given assurances that Joyner wouldn't stay on long-term. I'm sure if BOB really wants to stay, another year with Joyner isn't going to kill him but I guess we'll see how devoted he really is to PSU.
Confidence in Joyner, ugghh I have more confidence in a dead fish
The good news is that we have less thant 18 months to put up with dickRod and Joyner. I just hope the Presidential search committee selects wisely and we get a good President.
October 12, 2013. PSU 43 - UM 40 (4 OT). Unfortunately this fan wasn't around long enough to see it!
Yep, why hire a lame duck AD. It's like hiring a GM right before a new owner is set to buy a team.
"One man didn't build this program and one man sure as hell cannot tear it down."
I've been saying forever that it makes no sense to let him go. Maybe you dump him and bump someone else up in the interim if he's that big of a problem, but you don't hire a new permanent AD until you have a president.
BOB and company will just have to endure a little while longer. It's not going to kill anyone.

Erickson is out when exactly?
Penn State announced today (Jan. 21) that President Rodney Erickson has named David M. Joyner as Director of Intercollegiate Athletics through the remainder of Erickson's term of office, at which time a national search will be conducted.
Posted earlier in the thread: June 2014
Makes sense, only one more year with him.
Joyner shouldve never been an AD to start with. It is baffling how he is the current AD of one of the biggest universities in the world with top notch athletic department. Its like we handed over the keys to the Batmobile to a 2 year old.
Move someone up that actually worked in athletics such as JoeBa. Of course, his support for JoePa does not sit well with the BOT, but he is our best option at this time.
"Whoever’s trying to kill me isn’t getting the job done. But one day, I’m going to punch that f___r in the face."
You can do a lot of damage in a year.
I really don't get this idea you have to wait for a new president to hire an AD. It is a good job that will attract quality candidates with or without a new president in place. Waiting 18 months for a new AD is destructive and contributes to a directionless environment. Go hire someone with some leadership skills and no ties to the program and start to move this program forward.
The President of the University is the AD's boss and usually when the boss is hired he wants to bring in people that he/she has a say in hiring and works well with. From an ADs perspective, why would you take a job when you know that a year from now you and your boss might not get along and you could be looking for work? PSU is no different from any other business.
Erickson IMO isnt going to make it to 2014.
Agree, it won't take that long to find a replacement.
I'd be interested to hear your reasoning for that? Even if they find a great replacement tomorrow he still won't take over till Erickson's term is up.
Ironic that they do this on MLK day being that he apparently isn't fond of that cause of that "cause" if u get my drift....ask Coquese Washington what she thinks of him
Erickson will be here until June 2014, I'd wager.
The real question is, if Joyner is here potentially until August 2014 (maybe longer), will OB be here next year?
Ahh more god bomb and cage fighter quotes awesome
You are assuming erickson will be here for the rest of his contract. This article does not change anything.
Well, if all the BoT is trying to do is find a one-for-one replacement they can go out on the street tonight and find some apologetic bum and boom, replacement search is completed.
Not likely--and making this huge announcement about it is just a slap in his face.
