Big Man On Campus: Bob Bowlsby Formally Introduced As New Big 12 Commissioner
Published May 4, 2012
WHO’S NEXT AT STANFORD? In S.F., Tom FitzGerald reports Stanford Provost and acting President John Etchemendy “will lead a search for a replacement" for Bowlsby, though it was "not immediately known if there would be” an interim AD. Among the "possible candidates" to replace Bowlsby are Yale AD Thomas Beckett, Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl Exec Dir Gary Cavalli, Univ. of California-Irvine AD Mike Izzi, West Coast Conference Commissioner Jamie Zaninovich and West Virginia Univ. AD Oliver Luck (S.F. CHRONICLE, 5/4). Another “intriguing possibility” is former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Stanford has “never had a female AD” and the university “considered hiring" North Carolina State Univ. AD Debbie Yow before it hired Bowlsby (SFGATE.com, 5/3).
