LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - The University of Louisiana at Lafayette has made public paid consultant Mike Alden’s report on his six-month study of the Ragin’ Cajuns athletic department, which makes 20 strategic recommendations and suggests understaffing is problematic.

The Advertiser reports (https://bit.ly/228XTXL) chief among the recommendations from Alden’s report are to formulate a staffing plan to position UL to compete successfully and to create revenue streams by capitalizing on multimedia and marketing opportunities.

The report also calls for a six-year plan to decrease institutional support of intercollegiate athletics, which currently has a $23-plus-million budget, from 52 percent in fiscal year 2017 to 30 percent in 2024.

The reports says the department should create a competitive marketplace for expanded UL programming and set the stage for bringing in a multimedia agency to maximize revenues and resources.
