EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (KMSP) - The University of Minnesota is about to make one of their most important hires in history of the athletic department. Suffering from lack of success and support from the community, a committee is conducting interviews to find the right person to steer the Gophers back to prosperity both on and off the fields of competition.
One of the finalists for the position is Pete Najarian, a man that had success at the U with the Gopher football team and with his degree. He's currently an expert on CNBC talking all things Wall Street.
Najarian chats with Fox 9 Sports Now about why he wants the job, and how he sees schools in the future educating athletes to stay out of trouble.
