Myles Brand: A legacy of leadership
NCAA President Myles Brand, the first university president to serve as the Association’s chief executive and a champion of academic reform, fiscal responsibility and student-athlete well-being, died Wednesday from pancreatic cancer. Dr. Brand was a tremendous leader who always had the best interest of student-athletes in his mind and one who did a valuable job of steering the entire body in a very positive way. My family and I extend our deepest condolences to Myles Brand’s family – our thoughts are with them during this difficult time.
It would benefit you a great deal to read the legacy of Dr. Brand from the NCAA website.
