    Via The Pipeline:

    longtime AJC writer Darryl Maxie is out. No details.

    Former UGA beat guy Chip Towers was moved from his breaking news beat (5 a.m.-1 p.m. shift) to recruiting, even though he hates it.

    Recruiting expert Mike Carvell still on preps, even though he's the best recruiting guy in the SE.

    Great business strategy: Play people out of position. Make them miserable. Make the product worse.

    That usually means they're trying to force you out. Good luck over there.
  5. That was my first thought. Huh-whu?

    For a newspaper on life support, they are making a fabulous effort to rip out the IV line and disconnect the oxygen tank.

    "Let's move this guy from what he does best and is known for to a shitty job he'll hate, because we can say his skills will be better-served there!"

    Is there a worse job than full-time recruiting coverage? You can be great at it, but you can't compete with school-specific, fanboy Web sites that serve as covert intermediaries between coach and prospect.

    Your new beat involves a bunch of indecisive 17-year-olds who lie and change their minds all the time... No thanks...

    Always considered covering recruiting a thankless job.

    Is there any other business where grown college-educated adults cater to the whims of teenagers that struggle to pass the SAT?
