by Geoff Grammer July 2016

A University of Washington regent slammed former athletic director Scott Woodward on Thursday, saying Woodward did not let the governing board know about a growing deficit in the UW athletic department's budget. Regent Jeremy Jaech, the board's vice chair, described it as "a bad-faith effort" on Woodward's part to use one-time money, paid in advance to UW for multimedia advertising, and apply it to the budget. Jaech called it "an attempt to make the numbers look better than they really were." Woodward left UW in January for a similar position at Texas A&M. His replacement, Jennifer Cohen, was appointed last month and made her first appearance before the regents Thursday.
