UW President Mark Emmert has been selected to head the NCAA. The announcement was made today in Indianapolis. He is expected to assume his duties no later than Nov. 1.
“It is with very mixed emotions that I am writing to let you know that today I have accepted the presidency of the National Collegiate Athletic Association,” he said in an e-mail to UW students, faculty and staff. “I am proud of the work we have done together and absent this truly extraordinary opportunity would have been happy continuing as president for many years to come.”
