When your past doesn’t stay in the past

Ever cross paths with someone and then find yourself seeing media references to that person for decades?

When I was in college, I worked part-time at a small daily newspaper. I did a story on my school's football placekicker. He was totally personable. And he was a good kicker. He wound up getting drafted by an NFL team.

But his real career turned out to be sports administration. He has been called the best college athletics director in the country (see below). And I recently read about him yet again in a New York Times series on ESPN. The guy simply will not go away.

So who is your Tom Jurich?
