    Same Matthew Stevens who was covering Mississippi State and fired for saying negative things about Ladayette, Louisiana?

    Yup. Sounds like Lafayette will not be somewhere he actively pursues his next opportunity.

    Filled in like 2 business days? Probably shouldn't post on a board like this to have people spend time sending a resume and writing a cover letter when there's someone clearly set up to take the position already.

    Shit happens.

    Many job openings are never advertised. Others are advertised solely for legal purposes and have already been filled.

    Life goes on.

    While I kind of agree, they also never told you to send a cover letter, just resumé and contact info. So you wasted your own time writing a cover letter if you in fact did so. And honestly, sending a resumé/contact info doesn't take very long. They had who they wanted. Sucks but not the first or last time it'll happen

    No, I didn’t, was just speaking generally that a lot of people will take the time to write a cover letter even if it’s not mentioned. Just seems silly to post on a forum if you already have your guy. I obviously understand posting it on site for legal reasons.
