Congratulations on a job well done.

Rejoice, America.

The NCAA Board of Governors has unanimously voted to extend NCAA President Mark Emmert’s contract for an additional three years. The action extends Emmert’s employment as the NCAA’s chief executive until October 2020, with an option to extend an additional year to 2021.

“Mark has done an incredible job leading the Association through an unprecedented period of change and transformation,” said Kansas State University President Kirk Schulz, chair of the Board of Governors. “I and the board feel strongly that Mark is integral in leading the Association forward as we navigate the complex and challenging way ahead, while better supporting student-athletes.”

From a blogger’s perspective, that’s awesome news.  If only Stacey Osburn would weigh in…

    The one thing that could top that is UGA extending GM another three years.

      If they have hit the iceberg, they won’t know it for five years. Then they will say they hit the iceberg to protect the student athletes swimming in front of the boat.

    We are just soft in this country, little consequence for incompetence. Sad thing is protecting the bumbling fool means the organization lacks leadership for another five years, everyone who works for him suffers, as well as do the programs that continue to hang with the NCAA. Demand excellence, or move him aside. I am sure he is protected with a nice cushy payout for stumbling around for his first term so no need to worry about the Emmert clan.
