Goss RESIGNS The Michigan Daily - Wednesday, February 9, 2000- 7

signing of WRC with SOLE
members in meeting today
Cy Jeannie Baumann
aily Staff Reporter
Two weeks after University President Lee
Bollinger had to leave campus to attend to flood
damage to his Vermont residence, his office was
flooded with a series of events including a resig-
nation, a campus building takeover and an ulti-
matutn from a student group.

Director Tom Goss topped these events.
Bollinger said he has had ongoing discussions
with Goss regarding the state of the department,
and they came to a mutual decision that Goss'
resignation was the best course of action.
"This is a painful day for me. I don't want to
pretend that this is all good," Bollinger said after
the press conference announcing Goss' resigna-
tion, which was held yesterday in the Kuenzel
Room of the Michigan Union.
Meanwhile on the seventh floor of the Union,
members of the Students of Color Coalition con-
tinued their takeover of the Michagamua office.

organization that exploits Native American cul-
ture. In a written statement, the coalition
demanded for the University to end its affiliation
and funding of the Tower societies.
We want this space to be liberated for all the
students on campus," said Brian Babb, an SCC
member.
Babb, an LSA junior, said interim Vice Presi-
dent for Student Affairs E. Royster Harper
"understands our position. It's on her now."
Bollinger said administrators are currently
working to resolve these issues.
"We are preparing responses to the recommen-

Throughout the last week, Students Organiz-
ing for Labor and Economic Equality also have
put pressure on Bollinger to endorse the Worker
Rights Consortium, a student-composed policy
enforcing labor laws for all outlets that create
University apparel.
SOLE members are scheduled to meet with
Bollinger today. "Clearly, Bollinger is having a
rough week," said LSA junior Lee Palmer, a
SOLE member. "This is an opportunity for him to
express his decision. We're looking forward to
meeting with him to get the WRC project started."
SOLE originally had a Feb. 2 deadline for Uni-

sign onto the WRC. They extended the deadline
due to the flood in Bollinger's Vermont home.
"We're reasonable people," Palmer said.
But Palmer added that SOLE members will
not back down on their demands, despite Goss'
resignation and the Michagamua takeover.
"We insist that he sign onto the WRC. We
know it's the right decision for the University'
she said. Bollinger said the flood of events are'
part of his presidential position. "The job of being
University president is doing 500 things. Theres
an issue here, a problem there," he said. "Evexy
issue is important. Most are not even visible."

,Board members say Goss'
burden was not his own

camel's back, something obviously
happened, otherwise this (the resigna-
*ion) wouldn't have happened at this
time.
"When things happen is important,
how things happen is important.
Sometimes what happens is the least
important."
Berenson maintained his support for
Goss. Berenson also said that he was
not immediately successful when he
started coaching at Michigan in 1984.
"I didn't have a winning record here
for four years and had they got rid of
e it may have changed the course of
this program," Berenson said.
Other coaches shared Berenson's dis-
belief and regret over Goss' departure.
"This is a sad day for Michigan and
a sad day for me," Michigan football
coach Lloyd Carr said after the press
conference.
Diving coach Dick Kimball, whose
career has spanned over the tenures of
*ix athletic directors, said Goss was
put into a different situation than for-
mer athletic directors because of the
increasing scrutiny the position invites.
"The job of the athletic director is
like being President of the United
States," Kimball said. "Someone is
always going to look at you like you're
doing a bad job. There's always going
to be criticism."
Kimball also commended Goss for
*ilis efforts with integrating women's

programs into the University, some-
thing Goss listed at the press confer-
ence as one of his successes during his
tenure. Kimball praised Goss for
advancing women's sports by adding
women's teams, but not at the expense
of men's clubs.
Coaches from both men's and
women's teams seemed to share a
respect for Goss and the direction that
he navigated the department.
"I respect Tom for what's he's accom-
plished here," Michigan women's gym-
nastics coach Bev Plocki said. "But I
don't pretend to understand the scope of
what has happened today."
Members of the University Board in
Control of Intercollegiate Athletics
also expressed shock and confusion
over the resignation.
"This was absolutely between Goss
and Bollinger. The Board had no role in
this," board member Stephen
Papadopoulos said. "The performance
of Tom Goss in his job is judged by Lee
Bollinger and any personnel actions are
made by Lee Bollinger. I knew nothing
about this until Saturday morning."
Fellow board member Prof. Donald
Deskins also said he had no knowl-
edge that Goss would be resigning.
"Things seemed to be going well,"
Deskins, a sociology professor said.
Both Papadopoulos and Deskins
expressed concern over the criticisms
that have been leveled at Goss.
"I think he'll be missed because he
provided reasonable direction to carry
those reforms out," Deskins said.

"He inherited a lot
of problems that
didn't happen on
his watch."
- Donald Deskins
Member of the University Board of
Control of Intercollegiate Athletics
"When you read the paper, the way
the story was presented, Goss was
responsible for problems that have
occurred over 10 years. He inherited
a lot of problems that didn't happen
on his watch and that was the sur-
prising and shocking thing about the
coverage."
Papadopoulos, who has been in close
contact with Goss throughout this
ordeal, praised him for his leadership.
"This is a great loss to lose the
leadership of Tom Goss,"
Papadopoulos said. "It's remarkable
what he accomplished, considering
how short his career - which was
short by any standards - was here
at Michigan."
Papadopoulos expressed concern
about what Goss' departure will do
for the stability of the Athletic
Department. He also said that Goss
is "truly saddened that he has to
leave the University he loves. He
had great aspirations for this
department."

Bollinger said. "It's simply not the
role of the president of the Universi-
Bollinger said he recognized the
importance of deferring "in most
instances to the judgements of individ-
ual departments."
But at the same time, he stressed
the need for administrative partici-
pation in certain matters to allow
for a collective decision-making
approach.
"I do not want a University where
various parts simply decide how to
deal with things, and the University-
which we are supposed to represent in
the central administration, is only
informed about," Bollinger said.
A source said the "NCAA's recent-
investigation of Jamal Crawford's eli-
gibility --_ and Bollinger's unaware-
ness of it - was a factor in Goss'
departure.
"You can take any of the issues
that have been raised' in the media
over the past two or three years.
Every single one of those issues hAs
been a collective effort on the paft
of the athletic department and on
the part of the administration,"
Bollinger said. "Take any of those
issues, and you have University
involvement."
Near the end of this academic term,
Goss is to receive a lump sum of
S280,500, and will no longer be on the
University payroll.
Bollinger said he may name an
interim director this spring, and
plans to form a committee to search
for the University's tenth athletic
director. The appointment will be
the second in Bollinger's three-year
