The Next NCAA President?


The next NCAA president will oversee the organization's policies in a number of controversial areas, including player rights to names and likenesses, a potential college football national championship playoff, and policies regarding the hiring of minority coaches.

News has begun to leak regarding potential candidates under consideration for the position. Bowling Green State University president Carol Cartwright appears to have taken herself out of the running. University of Georgia President and former NCAA executive committee chairman Michael Adams and Notre Dame Athletic Director Jack Swarbrick (a finalist for the job in 2002) are apparent candidates. Interim NCAA President James Isch isn't interested in being a "caretaker," and has suggested he does not want to take on the job permanently, though he may at some point emerge as a candidate.

Other reported candidates include NCAA executive VP Bernard Franklin and University of Michigan president Mary Sue Coleman.

Dear Faculty and Staff,

I wanted to give you a heads up that a local media outlet will be running a story indicating that I am a possible candidate for the presidency of the NCAA.

I can assure you, as I assured the media, that neither the NCAA nor their search firm has approached me about the position. While I'm flattered to have my name mentioned as a possible replacement for Myles Brand, I am not interested in the position.

We are making great progress at the University. I want to make sure that we continue to achieve our goals on many important initiatives and that we have a smooth transition to new leadership. I am committed to BGSU through the end of my contract in 2011 and looking forward to trying retirement again.

Best Regards,

Carol Cartwright
President
