Washington President Named Head of NCAA

1

"University of Washington president Mark A. Emmert became the NCAA's new chief executive on Tuesday, ending the search that began in November. Emmert succeeds Myles Brand, who died last September from pancreatic cancer. Brand was the first ex-university president to lead college sports' largest governing body and the first chief executive to die in office. Jim Isch has served as interim president since Sept. 22 and will continue to do so for the next several months. Emmert will begin his duties Nov. 1. NCAA officials said Emmert was given a five-year contract." It looks like a Pac-10 guy will be leading the NCAA. I don't know much about him or whether or not this will change how things are handled in Indianapolis, but the change is worth noting.
