NCAA chief Brand passes away
NCAA Chief Executive Myles Brand passed away on Wednesday of pancreatic cancer. He was the NCAA President from 2003-2009.
"I think it was really good the way Miles Brand spent a lot of time focusing on the academic expectations of the NCAA," said UCCS athletic director Stephen Kirkham. "He made a big change in the attitudes among administrators and school presidents at all levels about what the expectations were with their athletic departments and making rules for if you were not doing what you needed to do academically.â"
