Perhaps it's a perceived lack of respect from the home institution, or a "the grass is always greener" scenario. Or, maybe he finally realized New Orleans is yucky and got out while the getting was good. In any case, it's a loss for Tulane. Seattle, consider yourself lucky.

Why are there so many people leaving school A to go to school B which is neither more prestigious or even stronger in tax? One wonders if this has something to do with declining resources and resulting frustration at many home institutions. Is this a wave of the future?
