Josh Whitman is the Athletic Director at the University of Illinois. He’s the guy who came in and cleaned house, fixed a whole bunch of problems, hired Lovie Smith as the new football coach and generally took names and started kicking ass. He’s like if you mashed up Dwayne Johnson, Jon Hamm and Red Grange.
He recently spoke with members of Illini Pride, the largest student organization on campus which supports all varsity sports teams i.e. Orange Krush and Block I, about the upcoming athletics year. His speech is phenomenal. Well worth the time.
