Poll: Did Hearing from Former WVU AD Shane Lyons Change Opinion of Him?



Calling Shane Lyons’ tenure as West Virginia’s athletic director polarizing would be being generous, especially in his last few years. He grew increasingly unpopular as the football team failed to climb to at least respectability.

But since most of the opinions about Lyons were formed without knowing inside information and what was going on behind the scenes, it’s now fair to re-evaluate after hearing what he had to say about his time at WVU, especially his experiences with other administrators at the school.

Lyons spoke candidly during an appearance on the WV Metro News Talkline with Hoppy Kercheval about his thoughts on where the football program stands, how he thinks Neal Brown has been doing and that he feels he was blindsided by university president Dr. Gordon Gee.
