Robert Mulcahy's chronicle of his decade leading Rutgers University athletics is an intriguing story about fulfilling a vision. The goal was to expand pride in intercollegiate athletics. Redirecting a program with clearer direction and strategic purpose brought encouraging results.; Advocating for finer coaching and improved facilities, he and Rutgers achieved national honors in Division I sports.  Unprecedented alumni interest and support for athletics swelled across the Rutgers community.

His words and actions were prominent during a nationally-reported incident involving student athletes. When the Rutgers Women's Basketball team players were slandered by racist remarks from a popular radio talk show host, Mulcahy met it head on. With the coach and players, he set an inspiring example for defending character and values.

Though Mr. Mulcahy left Rutgers in 2009, his memoir reflects continued devotion to intercollegiate athletics and student athletes. His insights for addressing several leading issues confronting Division I sports today offer guidelines for present and future athletic directors to follow.

Robert E. Mulcahy III has spent his entire career in service - since his days in the Navy following his graduation from Villanova University to his time as Chief of Staff to former NJ Governor Brendan Byrne, President & CEO of the Meadowlands and Athletic Director at Rutgers University. His love and pride for NJ has always been evident and is one of the biggest motivations behind his decision to accept the position as AD at Rutgers and bring the football program to the national stage. Bob was instrumental in the saving of the Pinelands, NJ hosting the World Cup and the NCAA Men's Basketball Final Four, Pope John Paul II's visit to celebrate mass at Giants Stadium, and bringing the NY Jets and the NHL Devils to New Jersey.
