TO KEEP AN EYE ON BOBBY KNIGHT? NCAA HEADQUARTERS TO INDIANA
Published June 2, 1997
The NCAA has selected Indianapolis as the new site for its headquarters, which had been in Kansas City since '52, and will move sometime in the year 2000. NCAA Joint Policy Board Chair Sam Smith: "Over the next 22 years, we will save in excess of $50 million in operating costs" (NCAA). The INDIANAPOLIS STAR-NEWS' Johnston & Theobald note "it was clear that money made much of the difference" in the choice to move. Indianapolis officials have said their incentive package is worth "about" $50M, while an offer to remain in the Kansas City area was said to be "in the range of" $29- 35M. Smith said that while the long-term savings offered by K.C. were "significantly" less, "from the quality perspective," there was "little difference between the offers." NCAA President Gene Corrigan: "The money was good. The money, you had to take it" (STAR-NEWS, 6/1).
