Vice President and Athletic Director Kortne Gosha joins the Higher Ed Athletics podcast to talk about the changes at Florida A&M University since his arrival in late 2019. Smith and Gosha start by discussing the career trajectory decision that many athletic administrators face at some point and how to learn from mistakes throughout the early days of your career. Gosha then shares his thoughts on his initial evaluation of FAMU, the ongoing COVID responses, including a change in athletic conferences from the MEAC to the SWAC as a way to maintain the student athlete experience while trimming travel costs. Smith ends the conversation asking Gosha what the future of Name, Image and Likeness (NIL) could look like at HBCUs. Lots of great advice in here for prospective higher ed administrators.
