Glass: Recession Hurting Athletic Department

A few weeks into his new post, Indiana University Athletic Director Fred Glass wants to stress the school ‘s commitment to playing by the rules. He said the school’s two-dozen university sports programs are already in-step with NCAA regulations, but the key now is to earn back public trust.

“My experience is that reputation trails reality by some period of time,” Glass said.  “And I think we have our act together, but I think we have to demonstrate that we do – that we know it [following rules] is an issue, that we give voice to it and it’s job one every day.  Because it only takes a little bit of complacency to have an incident where you take a step back.”

Glass is a former chief of staff to then Indiana Governor Evan Bayh, but has more recently served as president of the Indianapolis Capital Improvement Board, which owns and operates Lucas Oil Stadium, the Indiana Convention Center, and Conseco Fieldhouse.  He takes over a post held for four years by Rick Greenspan.
