You can read up on Glass right here, but here are a few quick points to consider:

  • Glass is an IU alum (1981 undergrad, 1984 School of Law)
  • Currently a partner in the Bakers & Daniel law firm
  • Served from 2000-2007 as the President of the Marion County Capital Improvement Board of Managers which owns and oversees the Indiana Convention Center, RCA Dome, Victory Field and Conseco Fieldhouse
  • Served on committees in 2000 and 2006 to organize the Final Four in Indianapolis
  • Current member of local organizing committee for Big Ten Tournament

Solid body of work, but the main thing missing is “led an athletic department at a major university in the Big Ten.” Wait, I’ll settle for experience at a smaller school. Not there either. I’ll withhold judgment until I hear some comments from McRobbie and Glass, but on the surface, there are some questions to be answered here. With that said, go get ’em, Glass.
