McRobbie Sets 13-Member Panel To Replace Greenspan

Last updated on Monday, August 4, 2008

(BLOOMINGTON) - The search for a new Indiana University Athletic Director is on, and a 13-member committee began the search in earnest officially on Friday.

IU President Michael McRobbie announced IU Vice President for Engagement Bill Stephan will be leading the search effort.

Stephan, an attorney and head of communications departments past for Clarian Health and Indiana University, agreed to lead the search committee manned by faculty, administrators, athletic department officials and alumni.

The need for a new athletic director became clear when current Director Rick Greenspan announced his resignation, effective on New Years Eve, at the end of June.

Greenspan resigned in part, due to the Kelvin Sampson controversy that sent the IU basketball coach packing, and the NCAA swimming in circles on what they perceived as Greenspan's inaction.
