In Wednesday’s “Breakfast With Benz” podcast, I’m joined by new Robert Morris Athletic Director Chris King to discuss his return to his alma mater.

King, an Apollo native, assumes the job on June 1.

He talks about how to best utilize the new UPMC Events Center. We also get into the prospects for a new hockey building.

He talks about budget challenges, diving into tackling those financial matters and trying to increase fundraising.

Then there is the issue of retaining some of the established coaches within the Athletic Department.

Also, when it comes to overseeing sports such as hockey and lacrosse, King has never managed those. Are there challenges to that dynamic?

And there is the internal pressure of demanding success of yourself as you return to your home city.
