And right now, it's looking as though it's going to be him. Talked with the ND briefly today, and he said he thinks the former EP will take the job. A little surprising, perhaps, but maybe he misses the adrenaline rush of news. Anyway, I could find out for sure as soon as Friday.
Friday is also the Asst. ND's last day. It will be strange not to have him around the following Monday. Interesting times.
