Bill loves to lift his teams up and always gives great welcome and introductions at the beginning of the year. He is always positive and trying to do why is best for you!

Although Bill is nice and a cool guy, he seems like he doesn't know what he's doing and acts in the best interest of the school rather than the student-athlete.

The AD was never a bad person never disrespectful or unfair in fact was always very enthusiastic and positive and wanted you to succeed. that said his actions did not align with his words. some decisions while I was on the team were so poor it did more damage than good and he was not good at communicating or being honest with players. He doesn't provide equal resources interest or support in all teams which never made sense to me as you'd think he'd want to improve all sports and aspects of the department. He always has good intentions and has done some very good things but some very bad. Im no AD but I'm just not sure how good at his job he is.

Helped me out with a scholarship issue when the coaching staff changed which was super helpful. However, it seems as if he almost doesn’t know what he was doing with his staffing. He fired the head coach out of the blue after some parents & students complained. The whole team did not feel this way about the coach, obviously in college not everyone is going to like their coach. The new guy he brought in was horrible, a clear consensus of hate towards the new hire was met amongst the team. He then quit after 1 season. That was my only issues with the AD.

He is hard to get ahold of and seems to care more about protecting coaches rather than athletes. He does not seem to understand how much athletes put into their sports. I have not had a good experience with bill.

As head AD, Bill has been someone who shows that he really does care about LIU and the athletic program, but he can be vague when talking to players. He does not always give the most information to student-athletes during coaching changes and new developments around the athletic department. He communicates more with the coaches and staff members in person, but will always get back to your emails.
