CINCINNATI, OH - Greg Christopher was away from his office at Bowling Green State University about a month ago when he got a phone call from Xaviers Mike Bobinski. Christopher didnt think too much about the message at the time. He and Bobinski had known each other from their time as athletic directors so Christopher figured it was just to talk shop.
The shop talk lasted a few minutes when Bobinski got to the heart of his call.
He said, Well, you know Im going to Georgia Tech. Would you have an interest in coming down here to Xavier? Christopher recalled on Tuesday. It took me about that long to say Yes, absolutely.

Christopher has been the AD at BG since 2006. He helped bring 60 million in...
