Clemson AD to be part of new NCAA Council of Athletic Directors

According to a report by the Wall Street Journal, NCAA president Mark Emmert will form a council of 10 athletic directors who will meet regularly with him and his senior staff to discuss new policy measures.

Emmert told the WSJ the pendulum had moved too far towards NCAA presidents making decisions such as on recruiting rules and effectively cutting athletic directors out of the process. Many have said NCAA presidents are not involved in college sports enough on a day to day basis to be able to make NCAA policy.

Clemson athletic director Dan Radakovich will join Kevin Anderson at Maryland, Mitch Barnhart at Kentucky, Gene Bleymaier at San Jose State, Greg Byrne at Arizona, John Currie at Kansas State, Dave Heeke at Central Michigan, Warde Manuel at Connecticut, Gene Smith at Ohio State, Peter Fields at Division I-AA Montana State and Peg Bradley-Doppes at Division I-AAA Denver.

Clemson, SC—Clemson Director of Athletics Dan Radakovich has been named to an Athletic Director Advisory Group to the NCAA leadership by NCAA President Mark Emmert. Radakovich, who is in his first year at Clemson, was one of 10 named to the committee. This ad hoc group will meet periodically with NCAA leadership to provide feedback and perspective on issues affecting Division I athletics.

“This is a great honor and I feel this will be a very meaningful committee as we look to the future of college athletics,” said Radakovich, who came to Clemson in December after serving seven years in the same capacity at Georgia Tech. “I look forward to serving with this distinguished group of experienced directors.”

The members of the Advisory Group include Radakovich, Mitch Barnhart of Kentucky, Gene Bleymaier of San Jose State, Greg Byrne of Arizona, John Currie of Kansas State, Dave Heeke of Central Michigan, Warde Manuel of UCONN, Gene Smith of Ohio State, Peter Fields of Montana State and Peg Bradley-Doppes of Denver.
