Abstract

In his first address to the NCAA convention in 2003 Myles Brand outlined two key objectives: academic reform and fiscal responsibility.  This article by someone who worked closely with Brand in NCAA leadership between 2003 and 2009 describes Brand's leadership style and how he led the planning and execution of these two important inititaives, one of which succeeded and the other which largely failed, despite Brand's best efforts.  The article examines the causes of both the success and the failure and their influence on intercollegiate athletics.
