New Memphis Tigers athletic director has a long to-do list

By , Daily Memphian Published: July 05, 2024 4:00 AM CT

Ed Scott doesn’t believe in tackling his to-do list sequentially. Rather, it’s all about juggling multiple issues simultaneously.

For the Memphis Tigers’ new athletic director, that’s a whole lot of balls — and perhaps a few sharp objects — in the air.

Building his leadership team. Raising money for stadium renovation. Lots of money. Filling a vacant head coaching position. Building corporate support and selling tickets. Lots of tickets. Making critical NIL-related decisions, too.
