Who’s next at the NCAA?

Michael Adams
University of Georgia president
The chairman of the NCAA’s executive committee will help lead the search, but he’s also expected to be a candidate. Adams has been outspoken on a number of issues confronting college athletics, including the need for a college football playoff.
Mary Sue Coleman
University of Michigan president
Coleman has been an instrumental figure on the NCAA’s board of directors, as well as the Knight Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics. She has been Michigan’s president since 2002 and comes from an academic background as a biochemist.
Walter Harrison
University of Hartford president
In his 11 years at Hartford, Harrison not only has taken a leadership role at the school, but also the NCAA. He chairs the committee on academic performance, while also serving on a number of other committees as well, and he’s the immediate past chairman of the executive committee.
Mike Slive
Southeastern Conference commissioner
It’s highly unlikely that the executive committee would veer away from another university president, but Slive could be an attractive candidate because of his experience negotiating media contracts and his aggressive, hard-line stance on cheating.
Graham Spanier
Penn State University president
Spanier established a link to the NCAA by chairing its board of directors, as well as the Big Ten Conference Council of Presidents. Additionally, Spanier has been known to don the Nittany Lion mascot suit at football games.
