New Fiesta Bowl Exec Dir Shelton Ready To Restore Organization's Image
Published June 15, 2011
FINDING THE RIGHT FIT: FS ARIZONA’s Craig Morgan wrote Woods in hiring Shelton “may have made another in a recent series of sage moves that help distance the Fiesta Bowl from the recently revealed details of its sordid past.” Shelton is “not really an outsider, as some have characterized him.” He “already sat on the BCS presidential oversight committee, a body that approves BCS-related governing decisions.” Woods “knew the hire would fall under scrutiny, no matter the person’s background.” Morgan: “Choosing a university president for this position is certainly a departure from the past” (FSARIZONA.com, 6/14). Woods said that Shelton “seemed like a perfect fit.” Woods: “You think about everything we were looking for. And he’s from here. And he has a passion for it” (ARIZONA DAILY STAR, 6/15).
