New Job At An Unprecedented Time - Alex Gary's First Year As An Athletic Director

In February of 2020, Alex Gary was announced as the new athletic director at Western Carolina University.  By the time the former Catamount baseball player started the job a few months later, the whole world had changed.  Gary recounts his first year as AD in this episode with John and Marcia, and what it was like to address all the challenges that arose.  He's the first Black athletic director at both Western Carolina and the Southern Conference.
