NCAA extends President Mark Emmert through October 2020


Mark Emmert has held his position as the president of the NCAA since November of 2010 and despite criticism of the job he has done, he will be sticking around the NCAA for at least the next four years.

The NCAA announced on Monday that they had extended Emmert’s contract through October 2020. ESPN’s Brett McMurphy reported that Emmert also has the option to take an additional year through 2021.

In his five years as president, Emmert has done a lot of for student-athletes, including giving them a “full cost of attendance” scholarship. This allows schools to pay for everything a student-athlete would need during their career from tuition costs to books and supplies.

Emmert, however, has also been criticized for his handling of the Penn State-Jerry Sandusky case and the O’Bannon lawsuit. Despite that, he has done a lot for student-athletes and he should be praised for a job well done.
