NCAA executive set to retire
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The NCAA’s massive overhaul is hitting the organization’s Indianapolis headquarters.
Chief operating officer Jim Isch announced he would retire early next year, a move that is prompting NCAA President Mark Emmert to reorganize his top staff.
He will create a new executive vice president position to oversee regulatory matters and will delegate most of Isch’s other responsibilities to others already working at college sports’ largest governing body. Those changes will take effect Oct. 1.
Isch, who joined the NCAA in 1998, will continue to assist Emmert in an advisory capacity until he leaves at a yet to be determined date.
