“It’s broken,” Winslow said of the FAMU athletics department. “It can’t be fixed. Tear it down, start over build it the right way.”
The statement showed that Winslow had not taken the time to find out what really happed to the athletics division.
Twelve years ago, FAMU had one of the best financially-managed athletic departments among all the nation’s historically black colleges and universities. Ken Riley, who started serving as FAMU’s athletic director in 1994, left the department with an estimated surplus of more than $3M when he stepped down in 2002.
