Fired CSU AD received poor performance review

FORT COLLINS - Jack Graham clearly articulated his vision for CSU's athletic programs but generally didn't work well with others, according to a summary report of a recent review of the former athletic director's job performance obtained by the Coloradoan under the Colorado Open Records Act.

Graham's overall review score was 2.34 on a scale of 1 to 5. He was rated at the lowest levels, with average scores below 3, on 17 of the 31 questions asked by five of the nine people who report directly to him in the 360-degree performance. The review was conducted in late June by Tim Athey, president of Transition Leadership and an affiliate professor in Colorado State University's psychology department.

Twenty-three people were surveyed in the review — nine employees who report directly to the AD, 10 peers and colleagues and four others.

"In roughly a third of the survey questions, Jack Graham received the lowest possible score — a '1, not at all' — from significant numbers of his direct reports/senior staff," the summary said. "Two-thirds of his direct reports/senior staff, 6 of 9, rated him at the lowest possible score in response to this question, 'Employees of the Department enjoy the work environment created by this individual.'
