Could Miami of Ohio's Bates Be A Candidate for UTAD?

A UT booster in Nashville mentioned that he has heard Miami of Ohio's Brad Bates' name mentioned as a possible candidate for the UTAD position.

Bates has a solid background with the academic success of the student-athletes in his program. He comes from an academic background at Vanderbilt, Miami, and Michigan.

Brad Bates- Candidate for UTAD?

Wouldn't be a bad hire...
Played and coached at Michigan, so he knows what tradition is all about.
Spent time in the AD at Vanderbilt, so he has Tennessee (state) ties and has experience in getting the student back into student-athlete.
In his time at Miami - OH, they have made huge strides in the athletics budgeting department and facilities upgrade department.
Also, my colleauge here at work is a Miami alum and says Dr. Bates is a very down-to-earth approachable guy...fwiw

No I don't believe so...Miami hired the Burning Vest in 1978 and he left in 1981.

Anyone with ties to Michigan is a FAIL.
