This episode originally aired on Athletic Director U.
Travis Smith is joined by Robert Morris University President Dr. Chris Howard on the Higher Ed Athletics podcast. Smith and Dr. Howard discuss presidential oversight in the NCAA governance model and Dr. Howard shares his thoughts on how cash in the system has led us to the Name, Image and Likeness moment. As his term is now complete, Dr. Howard talks about the perspective a university president can provide to the College Football Playoff selection committee while also being honest about the limitations of options with so few Division I presidents having football experience. Howard ends the conversation with advice for both university presidents and athletic directors so that each can better understand one another’s role in American higher education.
