David Harris, Director of Athletics at Northern Iowa, visits the 1.Question Podcast to discuss career progression. Harris talks about his path from Student-Athlete Services to AD. He recalls solving an organizational problem at Wisconsin which caught the eye of then football coach, Barry Alvarez. He also touches on the importance of finding success in uncomfortable situations, as well as making and managing decisions. A proponent of mentorship, Harris prepares his staff for a career outside of his leadership similar to the way he was mentored while working for, and with, Jamie Pollard at Wisconsin and Iowa State.
