MINOT -- North Dakota State University President Dean Bresciani is on the bubble. While every other president in the North Dakota University System under consideration got their contracts renewed the State Board of Higher Education decided to put Bresciani on an improvement plan.
He’ll be working with Chancellor Mark Hagerott to address a set of goals set by board members who will re-consider renewing his contract, which expires on June 30 of next year, at a meeting in November.
So now probably wasn’t the best time to enrage local media outlets, and the public, by instituting an absurd new media policy for covering NDSU athletics that’s so stringent that sports bloggers tweeting score updates from Bison football games would run afoul of it.
No, I’m not kidding.
