I don't know if you all saw the most recent Billiken Club email, but Tom Keith is leaving SLU for a position at Middle Tennessee State. Too bad.

Not to worry. We extended the contract of Mr. French.

He is a good guy. Solid future executive. It is not a good sign that he would leave SLU to go to Middle F-ing Tennessee State.

His family is there and it's his home.

He is taking a non-sports position for giving and donations. MTSU is 30k plus students - pretty big business.

TK did a ton for this program and he will be missed very much. Bills are losing a great one.

I don't think he will be replaced very easily.
